Kind of depressing - as vulnerable road users, one would hope that all cyclists would have more empathy with even more vulnerable road/shared use path/pavement users.
I expect this is caused by a minority of idiots, but then so are a lot of car issues in my experience.
Cue discussion on RLJing... Personally I say never do it. I would be pretty angry (an understatement) if a car jumped a red light and hit me, caused a near miss or even made me take evasive action . If I jumped a red light and hit/buzzed/forced evasic action from a pedestrian, guide dog etc, I think they would be quite right to be angry too.
Please can we all cycle considerately? Others' safety is more important than a few seconds of our time or the effort of getting back up to speed, and we ought to know it better than anyone.
