there needs to be a different set of laws for bicycles and cars...
in many cases I am sure there are
but there needs to be a restructuring of the law to make sense
because the end result of an "accident" on the bike is different than an "accident" in a car
talking on the phone or texting while driving is illegal in many states
yet... people still do it
it may be bothersome for a cyclist to text or talk on the phone while riding
but... if they rear end a car or run into a pedestrian
well.. it is far different than if a car/truck were to rear end a car or hit a pedestrian
this is a classic example why the laws should be different for the two vehicles
expand on that...
compare Drinking and Driving with Drinking and Biking
