bicycle rules

Urban Jungle

Just last week while crossing Massachusetts Ave, I was about to step off the curb when I almost lost my life!. A bicyclist blew by and thru a red light with no warning!. Now I did look quickly but this person came out of no where.

Don’t bicyclists follow traffic rules???? Don’t they have a bell or horn like an automobile? What has happened to Pedestrian has the right of way?

The traffic in Boston has gotten so bad over the past year I can see why there are are more cyclists on the road, but when I see two bikes side by side in a bike lane, than another passing on the right while traffic is back to back, and then, someone biking the wrong way in a bike lane shouldn’t there be “bike safety rules”.

How many of you have experienced this?????
