Even mildly tinted windows, provided they are on the front, are against the law. CVC 26708(a).

Not windshield, driver and passenger windows. The ones that roll up and down. Tint of any kind, and any shade, is against the law.

Wrong again. Law applies to aftermarket tinting. Car was purchased in ca. Therefore meets our standards


Best you recheck wording.

Still looking for the ca law that allows you bikers to run stop signs?

Key word in law you quoted is "apply". Factory tinted meets regs.

Or ride on the side walk, against traffic, or three abreast into the car lane when they'd fit single file in the bike lane.

I agree - those behaviors are wrong.

On my drive home today, I didn't see one single vehicle driving 65 mph, the posted speed limit, on the highway.

Will you agree that driving over the speed limit, rolling stop signs, and talking on the cell phone while driving is also wrong? Will you also admit you see these behaviors frequently?

Personally, I see them every single day. So common, in fact, we have come to accept them - the "flow of traffic" is often well beyond the posted speed limit. And if you dare drive it, you will be tailgated - also illegal.

Someone doing 70 with traffic on the freeway is a lot less likely to cause a crash than a bike riding against traffic on the sidewalk, then suddenly turning into the street. Its the predictability issue. If everyone is following the same rules, you can predict what they're going to do. When you throw in the wild card of a cyclist completely disregarding every rule of the road, crashed happen.

Ah, so motorists are at liberty to decide which laws they break based on the risks as they perceive them?

Speeding is against the law. Motorists break that law daily. They drive faster than conditions permit, and people die. There are over 35,000 -- THIRTY FIVE THOUSAND -- Americans killed every year in automobile accidents (Census, 2010). Of those 35,000 - 4,000 are pedestrians. Why is that? Because they're all playing on the freeway?

Perhaps if motorists slowed down, stopped driving drunk and respected cyclists as traffic - as the law allows - we wouldn't have so many injuries and fatalities.

Quit staring at the guy with the spandex and look at the car that just cut you off while jabbing on his cell phone.

And give me three feet; I am traffic.
