GregV:Mark: Also very interesting on the wording, for the poor bugger who got run over last week they never say he "ran a red light", they always say "the truck driver had the green"The cyclist may have chosen to run the red, drifted out too far, and got collected by the truck. He may instead have had a malfunction, and not been in control of his bike. After all, who would willingly bike into the path of a truck? Until the Police establish the facts, I doubt that they are going to place any blame on the cyclist.
I agree but think the OP isn't cyclist friendly as can be seen by his gross exaggerations and generalizations based on his perception not facts.
Suffice the media hype this sort of thing up as it gets reactions but changes little.
If the person on the bike is in the wrong they paid the price and thats really sad for all parties concerned but shouldbn't be used to make a point thats just wrong.
