they want to have the same rights as auto drivers, so they should follow the same rules.

If you use the road you should have to follow the rules like everyone else.

As a driver I'm already worried about hitting a cyclist when driving past them. Some cyclists are unpredictable and don't always stop at Stop signs or signal when turning.

It's dangerous for them not to stop and just to yield

They are already dangerous and have no care for road laws.

If they want to be on the road and not pay taxes for said road, they should at least follow all the rules of the road!

I believe that the law says they must.

9 out of 10 cars don't even stop at stop signs. Cyclists need to be extra careful when out on the road. It's scary out there.

All these laws are passed to give cyclist the same laws as a vehicle. It's what they push for so yes they should be required to stop. Maybe cars should yield at stop signs. That's how dumb it sounds

Also if they would use the bike lanes how they are supposed to be used and ride single file there would be less bikes hit. You push for the bike lane then you better use it. Common sense. Use it too!!

Is this just for bikes? Because if you're like me and ride a longboard, the roads in town are steep, so you catch too much speed and most of the time, see the car way before they see you to stop.

I can’t see why anybody would want to be ruled by modern liberals anymore at this point.

If you're so enamored with Idaho, move there. It's what an adult would do. Sadly, we're not dealing with adults. The child would inconvenience the majority to get It's way. Hint: the border will never be moved, quit wasting our time. This adult is staying in Oregon. The children can move.
