Treat us fair

"Fair! Treat us fair! Share the road," the bicycle riders cry.

And then, I see two bikers in yellow jerseys ride through an intersection without considering the stop sign. This is not the first time I have seen that. "Fair" works both ways.

I realize that the two yellow jersey riders were likely not the same people who made the statement of "fairness"; however, they are part of the same group. I would also be willing to bet they support the belief. That group, like any group, speaks with the actions of its members. Through their actions, they are undermining the efforts of their fellow group members. Where is the respect?

Regular law or not, perhaps before blazing through that intersection, they should have considered the word "stop". Then, they could have taken that second to consider the word "fair".
