    My favorite quote from the SFGate article on 280.

    “And while you’re at it, start ticketing lunatic cyclists who make it difficult and dangerous to get anywhere in a car.”

    Lest we forget all the poor, poor car drivers that get killed when they run into cyclists, who almost always get away without injury. /s

    At least some people are calling him out on it.
