Cyclist, you need to teach your other cyclists to obey traffic rules. I can't count the stop sign blow throughs that I see daily

Thanks for your recent article regarding cycling safety. It’s well written but omits one area: The driver. Just yesterday a van pulled up alongside of me on my left and made a right turn directly in front of me without enough clearance; cutting me off and I’ve got the video and his plate number to prove it! Drivers have backed straight into me. Service trucks block the bicycle lanes which forces cyclists into the center of the road -which is dangerous if a car is coming up behind you. One guy came to a full stop at a stop sign and hit the gas even though I was crossing in front of him. Only by screaming at the top of my lungs did he stop the car. In all fairness, I have to give credit and thanks to the 99% of motorists who are thoughtful, considerate and give the cyclist plenty of room on the highway but every day I go out, I worry a lot.

Also, is there a law that says a pedestrian cannot wear headphone or talk on the phone while walking. The police should enforce LAWS, not SUGGESTIONS.
