      3) Cursing and flipping the bird do no good. And, they are offensive, discourteous, and boorish.

        4) weaving in between baby carriages, walking families and seniors is also considered disrespectful, especially if done at speeds > 30mph

      Please remember
      1.lycra louts don’t own the road and contribute road taxes to their upkeep

      2. Cyclists dont have liability insurance, so they are personally responsible for damage

        Please remember:
        1. Road user fees pay for less than half the costs of the roads. Google it. Personally owned autos are the most subsidized mode of transportation in the US.
        2. Nearly everyone who’s riding a bike also pays taxes on their car, home and sales tax, etc. This is what pays for roads.
        3. Car and homeowners insurance cover cyclists.
        4. It’s not Hudgins fault all of the time.

          Please remember
          1.bike louts pay zero extra for roads. Vehicle users pay a lot more than bikes. There are no taxes or fees on bikes or bike use, but car attract a horde of them
          2.bike lanes arent free neither are the roads
          3. Not all bikers have car or home insurance
          4. Apart from Hudgins, who else runs Fairfax County. KP is AWOL

          • Sorry

            Lets make woonfers free for all.

          Roads designed by cars absolutely shaped out community into what it is and where we chose to live with the biggest investment of most of our lives. This investment benefits and shapes our economy fundamentally. Bike lanes and others add-ons for bikes run contrary to community design, increase safety hazards, and benefit the very few, even though we all pay for them. Your arguments are going nowhere in the logical world.

      1. Please define “troll” and describe how that fits me.
      2. Done.
      3. Looked for your comments on the bike strike story. You were AWOL.
