The laws are an incredible mess here in Wisconsin, there are so many loopholes, and laws that contradict other laws, it makes one do a “double take.”
Recent issues over a bicycle crossing have many confused. A bicyclist has the same rights as a pedestrian ( dismount off your bicycle, and walk it across, than you are a pedestrian ). Yet recently an opinion column from Dave C from the Wisconsin Bike Fed, titled:
“Right to the road” and than this right below: “bicyclists are entitled to ride where they choose” later in the article stating that: “a bicycle is legally a vehicle like a car or truck”
alright now we have a problem, since now bicyclists are granted the same rights as a pedestrian, when will this contradictory idiocy stop!? ( hopefully not through more of the usual political correctness, to shutdown debate! ) How does this help bicycling & the bicycling community, not to mention the bicycling communities image?
