Red Bike / Bike Lights
I was just thinking of a good way to show how stupid bikers are. Every day I pass a white bike where some one was killed and I thought today "That's it" I should make a red bike and when a biker without lights, helmet or who broke some law was killed I will put up a red bike.
Better yet anyplace bikers do stupid things I will put up a red bike. Where they ride three abreast in a bike lane made for one. Where they run lights and stop signs and where they are biking without lights..... wait that's everyplace!!!
I would have to put red bikes on every corner. Portland would fill up...hmm what to do.
Hey I could make a red bike stickers. Drivers and walkers would just stick them places bikers are idiots. White bikes could be covered up with red bike stickers. That would be great! Biker comes down the one way street the wrong way then pulls into their favorite brew pub, you could walk over and put a red bike sticker on his seat.
I like this idea. Red Bikes for Stupid bikers.
The other idea was red bike locks. When A biker does something stupid you follow them and when they park to go shopping on 20th at the new seasons or any place stupid bikers (lets just call them bikers) go you lock up their bike with a bright red lock.
Now that is some ass kicking social action. I like that.
Can you just hear the crying. They would be so pissed they would smash the window out of any car they could get their hands on.
Red Stickers and Red Locks
Man that is funny.
So here is a challenge.
This will determine if you are bikeidiot or not.
What is a bikeidiot? Well a bikeidiot is some one uses the "Were saving the world" angle to justify everything they want as being right and any opposition to their demands as evil. It also means you are an apologist (man I like that word, only in english do you get such a nice word)
for bikes. This person admits to bikers shortcomings but again uses the (You have to see the big picture)
On the opposite side of this argument is the Smart Person. To the smart person you cannot say that bikers are not breaking laws when you can show them they are and doing so far more then say UPS trucks, Gas Delivery Trucks, Motorcycles, Vans or Electric Cars.
So I stand on the bridge say the hawthorn bridge at night and watch the bikes go over along with the cars.
How many Cars will have no light on? how many bikers will have no lights on?
What are the ratio of lighted to unlighted.
Well I'm going to do this on sunday. When I say I'm going to do this I mean my minion who is a burly guy who won't mind standing out on a bridge alone, at night, with a camera and a clipboard counting.
So my minion will stand out there and count.
What will his outcome be?
If the first thought through your head is "Bikes will blow this one big time" You are a Smart Person.
If your response is one of the following.
1. It doesn't matter
2. Bikers will fail at this but...
3. This doesn't prove anything.
Or any one of the number of excuses bikers use then you are a Bikeidiot (see special work for Portland Bikers)
So that's my rant for the week.
Red Locks, Red bike stickers and Bikers not following the law.
Remember Bikeidiots: "It ain't going to matter if you are dead who had the right of way, You are still dead"
here is to a bike free future.
