Chicago Police Cracking Down on Cyclists.

The city is cracking down on enforcement of cyclists abiding by traffic laws.  As a fairly regular bike commuter, I completely understand the need to teach cyclists (and recreational riders fall into that category) the rules of the road and the importance of abiding by them.  I’ve seen quite a few cyclists (both recreational and the kitted up racer dude) blow lights and stop signs without any regard for the cars that are already stopped and awaiting their turn.  Illegal (and completely RUDE) behavior such as this leads to increased driver frustration with cyclists who think they’re above the law.
I also wish that the police would teach drivers about the rights of cyclists.  There have been way too many drivers attacking cyclists with their cars.
