Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

There is much difference in practice.

Are you referring to the reckless cyclist who was traveling too fast for the dark and rainy conditions because he was desperate to make the green light and was riding without any reflectors or lights or bells (all law violations), reflective clothing, and swerved without looking into the crosswalk to avoid a collision but risking hitting any possible pedestrians there while I was cautiously making my turn at about three miles per hour?

Safety is everyone's responsibility as I have numerously pointed out and that includes cyclists and pedestrians. The cyclist had the responsibility to obey the law. The motorist cannot be expected to avoid someone that cannot be seen. That's the reality.
