Rules of the road

To quote part of the caption from the front page photo of the Feb. 7 paper, "Weston Cossman ... said riding in town is sometimes a hazard."

Now, the reason for this short letter. Mr. Cossman was riding down Sixth Street against regular traffic and he was talking on a cell phone.

I am pleased to see that a bike plan is being worked on for the city. But if bicyclists want respect and safety for themselves, they themselves need to respect the rules of the road.
