If bicyclists are allowed to roll through red lights, maybe they should be required to have insurance as well, because there's going to be a lot of windshields to be replaced...

Yeah, I think some of that is Vox trolling. I do think that we need to re-think stop signs, but I also think we need to do that because automobile drivers are ignoring them too.

Yes, when no-one is around in (front, side or behind), I have slowly rolled through some stops to save some ergs. But even if cars are well behind me, I want them to see me behaving predictably, in accordance with the law. The predictability part is important. I expect them to behave a certain way and I want them to know I will be behaving a certain way.

Of course, I'm assuming they see me at all, and care. Which is the issue.
