    One can dream though, that one day, Gwyneth Paltrow would want to ride slowly and hog the road.

    I agree with everything you wrote except the COE part. Kinda hard to encourage riders when they gotta pay so much for a bicycle.

    It's the goddamn mindset of some of these cyclist. They think that just because they are on a bicycle, the whole damn world has to give way to them regardless of what they do.

    They can have Category F COE, maybe cheaper than motorcycle?

    And with the money maybe the govenment can build proper bicycle lanes for cyclists.

    Exactly. I do not see why motorcyclists should go through all theory testing on using the roads and subjected to road regulations when
    there are no strict rules on even more vulnerable cyclists on helmet wearing / road hand signs to signal direction or movement / lights.
    Accidents can easily happen when one party becomes too complacent about safety and assumes other road users will look out for them.
