Philly Bike Riders

While I'm hating on various modes of transit, let me give the big raspberry to bike riders in Philadelphia. Increasing numbers of them have decided that all traffic regulations don't apply to them and have abandoned common sense and decency. I'm quite happy for bike riders to bend the rules a bit at times, but they shouldn't act like they own the place any more than SUV drivers should. Things like riding the wrong way down one way streets are stupid, and riding on sidewalks as if pedestrians don't belong there make you an asshole.
