Does Any Law Of Physics Prevent Bicylists From Stopping At Stop Signs?


Does any law or principle of physics inhibit bicyclists from stopping at stop signs? 

I am not a physicist.

Yet it is unlikely to me that any law of physics prevents bicyclists from observing stop signs.

If I can stop my car at the stop sign, I’m near certain that a bicycle could be stopped as well. 

Above you see a stop sign from Thailand.

Could it be that many stop signs in America are printed in languages bicyclists do not understand?   

Well, all I can speak for is the stop signs I see and I’ve never seen them in anything but English.

I’ll gladly pay more taxes for more bike trails.

This would keep these law breaking cyclists away from me.   

Below is a picture of a duck with a bike in the background.

  1. Real bike trails? In Houston? Surely you jest. Having moved here from a city that actually had them the bike lanes here, what few there are, are a joke. Yeah, I’d pay to see more so that I could actually use my bike properly again.

    And I’d obey all traffic signs, really.

  2. Bike lanes? That’s any lane a biker decides belongs to him or her no matter how busy traffic is, right?

    You can see I’m so keen on these folks.

    I’ll pay for bike lanes DP. You never know with the gas price increases. It might some day happen.

  3. I second the motion. Bikers are an enormous traffic hazard and they think nothing of moseying along in the midst of busy traffic lanes.

  4. Newton—Yes. They take over whole lanes at rush hour and at other busy hours.
