Virtually everywhere I go in Canada and the US, I see bicycles lane splitting, going up the shoulder, not stopping for stop signs, blah, blah, blah. Yet to see one pulled over because of it.

Technically a bicycle is supposed to follow the same rules as any other vehicle, but in an incident, its unlikely anybody but the cyclist will be hurt.

Darwin takes care of stupid cyclists by default, no need for law enforcement.
