To the bike rider on 700 East that we almost ran over: Just because you wave at us as you ride your bike in the crosswalk does not make it OK to force four cars to slam on our brakes to avoid killing you — especially when the light was clearly red for you and green for us. I don't mind sharing the road with bikers who obey the laws of the road, but I'm tired of those who think the laws are created for everyone else. I hope you are glad to be alive today.
