If we as cyclists seek to attain equal rights and status as cars we should consider the following: 1) Drivers driving without brakes because it's cool. Think that's stupid? I can stop my manual transmission car and start it again just fine without brakes. 2) People driving cars without functioning lights. 3) People in cars deciding they want have a random and spontaneous parade on a friday night on city streets after drinking a bunch of beer.

Around here apparently the law abiding are trying to take back the mass from the fixie hipster pbr swillers. Perhaps that's futile, but it's a start.

Also consider this: does it make more of an impact for motorists to see a big slow moving blob of bikes? or would it be more effective if the first/last friday of the month everywhere you look there's a bicyclist or two, on every street, at every intersection, on the front of every buss, outside of every cafe pub and bar. Not slowong anyone down, not causing a scene, not breaking any laws, just everywhere proving the point that bikes are more efficient, and better for everyone.
