Letter: Responsibility of rider

Joyce Rankin’s letter of Aug. 3 I believe misses the point. I have been riding all types of bikes for 60 years.

As in gun control, it is the operator of the instrument that needs to be restricted or controlled. I have found bike riders in the valley most obnoxious and unsafe, there seems to be no policing of their dangerous behavior. The flagrant disregard of my rights seems to be more prevalent in bicyclists than any other mode of travel. Just an observation.
