Is it okay for cyclists to break the law?
I’d argue that it isn’t, with similar caveats to those offered by Andrew Grimson, but that drivers are more dangerous and should be policed more heavily and look to themselves before they start complaining.  As this piece is on the Telegraph site expect a rash of "cyclists are scum" foaming mouthed responses.

Coupled with the piece in the Times a couple of days ago this makes me feel optimistic that the Right leaning heavyweights now have a few correspondents with a sensible attitude to road users outside petrol powered boxes.
