As a UK major city resident for most of my life I am amazed at the liberal approach to cycling I have witnessed here in Blacksburg.
I daily witness cyclists jumping red lights and cycling the wrong way or on the wrong side of the road.
As a cyclist (and car driver) myself it is incredibly frustrating to watch flouting of the laws with such disregard. Car drivers rarely respect cyclists anyway and so by jumping red lights cyclists are basically giving the middle finger to all other road users.
I think the police should cease giving warnings as students on campus are living in the real world now and should step up to their basic responsibilities. If you are old enough to vote and choose to cycle then surely you should also understand basic road laws.
As a side-point I think it IS confusing for campus rules to be different in that cyclists are allowed on the sidewalk I advocate stopping this practice immediately.
