There are more fat kids than starving kids. Should we ignore the starving ones? Same logic?

The fat kids wouldn't be fat if they could ride their bikes without helmets.

Please don't misquote me, you illiterate fuddyduddy.

Some general context: I am a courier, but I am not the one on the Klein. I did show him your post though - he found it strange and amusing that people are/were talking about him on the internets.

Anyway, it shouldn't take a whole bunch of empathy to put oneself in the position of a courier - what we do isn't rocket science, afterall; just logistics. People want shit to move from A to B within a defined period of time. A lot of people moving shit in different directions all at once. Fail to make the time, risk not being paid - or worse, pissing off the customer and losing their contract. Everything is stat-tracked and gps'd these days. It's a competitive industry where every company is offering essentially the same service. Numbers don't stay green, someone in Auckland starts a ball of shit rolling all the way down the hill.

Now, for an expected dose of hashtag messlife arrogance: Don't make the mistake of lumping all cyclists together. What you do and what we do is a world apart.

Make no mistake: I'm not disagreeing with you on any particular point, but merely suggesting that your opinion is priggish and your means of expression boorish. :love:

ahh, bike couriers, too cool for road rules from way back :thumbsup:

glad to know you agree with us that your (minimally paid) life ain't worth shit, so it won't matter when you end up splattered all over a truck's bumper bar

:lol: wow

Can't say I disagree. Sounds like being a bike courier is being a part of a race to the bottom...

Sadly it does matter to many people. Family, witnesses, etc. Also it does matter when other law abiding cyclists and tax payers have the fund the rehab or institutional care for the helmetless non law abiding brain injured bike courier. Dickheads. Life work balance is really fu#ked up when life is risked for work.

Sorry but how does any of that actually justify a courier jumping the lights, running reds and otherwise breaking the law? :blink:
Why does any of what you say make it ok for couriers to run a red light and either freak out a driver who narrowly misses killing them, or conversely train drivers to expect all cyclist to be red-light running dickheads and yes, all cyclists cos those freaked-out drivers don't note the subtleties that mark you as a courier and therefore above the humdrum rules the rest of us are expected to follow as laid out in the road code?

the problem is that motorist (lumping them (including me sometimes) all together) lump cyclist all together, and when a cyclist is hit from behind on a straight piece of road with plenty of viability, motorist think " cyclists are always running red lights, and doing other dangerous things" and are therefore not outraged that for the lack of slowing down (till it is safe to pass) a truck driver killed someone. and therefore buy your actions you endanger us all, please stop. :love:

One dude set an unreasonable standard of delivery times by being a tosser and breaking the law. Everyone either followed the leader to remain competitive or found a different job.

Now the only people left are people like Mr. Barcode and his helmetless friend.
