When passing a bicyclist on the road, i'll make every effort to give them as much space as possible. However if they are going to be on the road, they should obey the same laws that a person in a car does. I can't count how many times i've seen them ignore a red light and just go through it. I can't tell you how close I have come to running over someone not because of my neglience, but because they are riding on the wrong side of the street and worse yet on the sidewalk on the wrong side of the street. Then they have the nerve to to curse me when its their own fault. If they are going to be on the road-they should obey the same laws and ultimately it would be safer for them.
