Reaction from Auckland motorists to the Greg Paterson bicycle incident has been largely unsympathetic in today’s Herald, especially the editorial. The implicit argument from drivers that cyclists break rules so are not worthy of protection beggars belief.

It also an argument that gets repeated ad nauseum around the world it seems: The myth of the scofflaw cyclist unpacks how both drivers and cyclists break laws…but this should have little bearing on keeping cyclists safe.
