Still, saying that at least one cyclist ran the red on every traffic light cycle on oxford st is pretty irritating. Is patience really that hard? Give me whatever excuse you want for doing it but it boils down to knowing you'll 99% get away with it and you can't be stuffed waiting. Gives all of us a bad name.
Unfortunately that is the reality of cyclists' behaviour on Oxford St. I see frequent running of red lights. Indeed, when I'm cycling and turn right into Oxford St from Glenmore Rd (at Victoria Barracks) I have to check left for cyclists flying down the hill through the red light. It's extremely dangerous behaviour. I agree that cars running red lights are a larger and more dangerous problem but this doesn't excuse cyclists doing the same thing.
