A little relic found on the Youtube. Almost Live! was a sketch comedy show in Seattle from 1984-1999. In this clip they discuss bike lanes around Greenlake and the car vs. bike debate.
The bicyclist’s pledge:
-I will dart wildly in and out of cars only when I have a good reason, like if I’m late for a Beck concert.
-I will spend an equal amount of time frightening old people up on the sidewalk as I do frightening old people in cars.
-Once in a while, I will stop at a stop sign, just to show people that I do know what it means.
The Driver’s pledge:
-I will honor the bicyclist’s right to share the road with me, unless it looks like I’m going to miss the start of Wheel of Fortune.
-I will no longer shout “Hey you look like a gay space alien from a planet where gays don’t have a lot of fashion sense” at passing bicyclists.
-I will not use a two ton automobile to intimidate someone who is trying to be ecologically sensitive, unless he gives me one of those smug, self-righteous glares- then I’m going to have to go a little medieval on his bony ass.
