    It is a shame someone got hurt, but it was probably the bicyclist fault he was struck. Most cyclists I've observed totally disregard the rules of the road. They ride right through stop signs, don't signal, ride on the wrong side of the road, pass cars inappropriately etc. As a motorist we are required to follow a defined set of rules which include rules to allow cyclists use of the road safely. Cyclists are required to follow these same rules when riding on public roads. I have seen very few cyclists that actually follow the rules.
