Cyclists and pedestrians do neither and both show a constant disregard of out laws through either ignorance or apathy.

Interesting. Do we need pedestrian lessons and walkers insurance, then?

I'm all for cyclists obeying the rules of the road, but I'm also all for keeping beauracracy out of the way of people's lives and pockets when not necessary.

Cars require lessons and licensing and insurance because they dangerous. Walking can no more be considered a "dangerous activity" than can breathing - we are human; we walk. In between walking and driving comes cycling. We should encourage it, not erect further barriers.

Enforcing rules against cyclists - and pedestrians - should be priority no. 2. Having a city which is a great place to bike and walk in - and thus shop and eat and hang out in - is no. 1.
