Bicycle Cults Lobby General Assembly for More 'Free Range' Activities

Hey, Yupette,

Virginia's bicycle cults have been aggressively lobbying the General Assembly for more 'free range' activities for bicyclists and more restrictions on motor vehicle operators. These activities include allowing people on bicycles to wear face masks in the winter (currently illegal), increasing the required separation between motor vehicles and bicycles from 2 feet to 3 feet, prohibiting motor vehicles from closely following bicycles, allowing bicyclists to pass motor vehicles on the left, and holding motor vehicles owners and operators responsible when bicyclists run into vehicle doors being opened.

Of course, there is nothing related to safety and responsible bicycling in any of the bicycle cults' proposed legislation - like making wearing helmets and reflective vests mandatory. Stay tuned to see how much of the legislation gets passed and signed into law this year.

Pretty irresponsible that they won't lobby the General Assembly to make wearing helmets mandatory for kids.

There is like Z E R O enforcement of traffic laws involving biketards acting recklessly by the Arlington police. No fooling --- they're a cult.

There is ZERO community policing by the Arlington police, spend all their time on traffic, domestic disputes, loud party complaints, shoplifting at Pentagon City, and suspicious person complaints involving african americans and latinos.

Supposedly moped owners are required to have their mopeds licensed. Not enforced.

County Board approved the construction of 960 parking spaces last County Board meeting. Don't like motor vehicles? Tell Jay, Mary, Walter, and Libby.

Wear face masks? Meaning those lovable couriers who deliver recreational drugs to Yuptard neighborhoods via mountain bikes?

When they aren't spraying their own soon-to-be-gentrified neighborhoods with 9mm bullets because another drug dealer dissed them.

If I buy a 2014 Prius for $25,000 how much do I pay in sales tax and personal property tax every year. Plus tax on gasoline?

Some bicycle fanatic buys a racing bike for $1,500 off the Internet, he pays what in taxes?

You run multiple stop signs in a residential neighborhood in your Prius you are in big trouble if the cops see you. Do the same thing on your racing bike, the cops just yawn.

Where's the legislation mandating that the biketards maintain a 3-foot distance from parked vehicles?

I gotta wonder how many people on bicycles who are running stop signs and traffic lights drank their breakfast, lunch, supper.

If New York and Philadelphia are any indication the bicycle cult will get completely out-of-control before law enforcement does anything.

Another obnoxious Yuppie cult...what will it be next?

Hate motor vehicles? Tell the County Board. Approved the construction of 12,000 parking spaces during the past two years.

When they get completely out of control, as happened recently in NY and Philly, Arlington County Government will act. Not before.

It's already starting - was almost hit by a guy on a mountain bike riding alternately on the sidewalk and street on Fairfax Drive in Ballston yesterday.

Forget the police doing anything until pedestrians are hit and badly hurt while crossing the street or walking on the sidewalk.

Cops are too busy with shoplifters at Pentagon City.

Bike riders are not all the same any more than all pedestrians or all drivers are the same. Following the laws, wearing a helmet, and being visible is best for everyone, especially the rider on the bike. So those who don't advocate for those things don't represent me.

Nice sentiments. Reality is that attitudes by bicycle owners are about the same as the attitudes about smoking, gun ownership, and alcohol consumption ---- 50 years ago.

Mandatory moped registration starts July 1, 2014.
