Time to clamp down on cyclists

Before insisting that increasing the number of bicycle lanes and "road diets" are the way to go, Glendale officials should consider appropriate safety issues. Cyclists must follow accepted traffic rules. I have seen too many cyclists who have blown through stop signs and traffic lights, impede right turns for autos and other cyclists, jump onto and off sidewalks, veer in front of car traffic without looking to go around a parked car; and ride side-by side talking and frequently meandering to the left.

No one minds sharing the streets. Cyclists should take their riding seriously and responsibly and not expect car drivers to second-guess them.
