Skin them. Salt them. Tear out their innards. Then impale them on stakes.

Nail the bad drivers as hard as possible (raise their insurance rate to top level), any that get caught driving while suspended. Instant life long driving ban. Driving is not a right

In regards to the article about getting tougher with street racers and stunt drivers ... yes, the same applies to cyclists

If we don't have things to think about we'll just go back to staring at our mobile phones and running people over in the crosswalk ...

Once again, when I was growing up, I was told to look both ways, and listen, before crossing the street/ :smt045 crosswalk, even if the light says walk, does not mean some vehicle or cyclist is going to stop to let you cross, make eye contact with the driver/cyclist, take responsibility for your own actions. WAIT until it is SAFE to cross the street . I was told this at a very young age, and have not forgotten this simple, common sense advice. :smt045

Purple haired yoots are taught that it's ok to wear all black, keep your hood up, stare at their phone, wear headphones, look at the ground, and walk into the road regardless. Because they're entitled to cross the road.

Kids are taught dumb stuff. Different generational attitudes.

I hate that he refers to it as "omsterdom" and not the accepted North American pronunciation of "Amsterdam" yet he refers to Copenhoggen" as I have always beleived it to be as "copenhaygen".

as for the part where it is difficult to prove that a cyclist is at fault in an accident, that drives me nuts. Can you imagine if the laws here were written so that drivers have to be prepared for the erratic and unpredictable behavior of the squeegee crews or the meth heads who run around in and out of traffic as though they were protected due to stupidity? Because that is what the law there amounts to. Protection of the idiot masses.
