Thank Me

I'm not a New Yorker or a cyclist, and I get that some bike lanes might be poorly designed or even inappropriate or certain streets, but what annoys me is when drivers get bent out of shape by pedestrians and cyclists who, for the most part, they should be thanking for not contributing to additional traffic. Sure some cyclists behave badly, but they're mostly just putting themselves at risk, not actually causing congestion at the opening of the Lincoln Tunnel. Ditto for pedestrians. What they have chosen to do is not surround themselves in large metal boxes to join in with the other numerous large metal boxes on the roads. If they had chosen to do that then Manhattan would truly be the giant parking lot of OneJag's dreams.
