Just as dumb as the protesters that block traffic.

Or the motorcycle riders that will block intersections to allow a long train of their buddies to get through. Harley riders seem particularly troublesome in this regard.

I'd like to add cyclists that pass cars that are stopped at a traffic light on the far right to get to the front of the line.

I would make this even more particular and add cyclists that pass cars positioned to take a right turn while traffic/pedestrians clears on the right to get to the front and block the right turn.

I used to be a a regular cyclist and driver both in downtown traffic and I never used to do this. Now I only drive in the city but see this all the time...half these "cyclists" cant even navigate street car tracks without out breaking an elbow..../rant

I had a cyclist smack my trunk lid because I hugged the curb and he couldn't pass while I was stopped at a light to get to the front.

I used to ride a lot, but now, I'm too afraid of texting and otherwise inattentive drivers to risk it, so I stick to parkways and trail riding.

are they not supposed to do that? in my location there are boxes in front of the lane for cyclists. i dont really know what theyre for but i figure its for cyclists to get in front? but i dont think its for them to be cycling in front of my car when the light turns green. i would think they would get on the side or something. ive never had someone use the box so im not sure

edit: here found a pic. ours dont look that nice but i think its the same

No, absent a bike lane, they're supposed to abide by the same rules as a car. Which would not be passing on the right, off the shoulder of the road. My gripe is that on a two lane rural road, after spending several minutes waiting for a clearing to get around them, you get stopped at a traffic light and they breeze by several cars, off the shoulder of the road, and you're stuck behind them going 7 mph in a 45.

If there are actual bike lanes, like in your picture, it would be much easier.

It's a dumb idea bc in a parking lot it looks like the car is going to leave the stall. So people end up waiting for the car to pull out for nothing

Common sense says look for accompanying brake lights. If people are too dumb to put the two and two together, then it is their problem.
