Wisconsin’s contradictory laws, bicycle as a vehicle is now questionable.

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?
