Road Users Are All Alike

On holiday without time or access to give this a proper pithy writeup, so posting it for my own future reference. Shorter university study:

1. All road users break the law.

2. Cyclists do so for reasons to do with their own safety, while drivers do it to save time.

3. Lack of penetration of utility cycling in society is the main source of asymmetrical friction between drivers and cyclists.

This confirms what we all know, on many levels, and reinforces my opener in conversation with someone new on the topic of ‘The Scofflaw Cyclist.’
