Letter to Tribune Editor: Drivers should follow traffic rules too

Chicagoan Paul Mollica wrote an excellent "Letter to the Editor" at the Chicago Tribune regarding the "tone" of many essentially anti-bicycle articles. Mr. Mollica is 100% correct that it is hypocritical of motorists, as a general group, to argue that bicyclists, as a general group, don't follow the rules of the road. For every bicyclist that blows a stop sign or doesn't signal, there's a motorist the "rolls" a stop sign of parks in a bike lane. Two wrongs don't make a right. Both bikes and cars have are permitted users of the roadway and all should follow the Rules of the Road.
