Stop sign in the name of love

Eric Zorn at the Chicago Tribune asks, Who stops for stop signs?

Nobody, it seems--especially cyclists:

"As an avid cyclist, I am in favor of any attempt to control the dangerous behavior of drivers..."

"ZORN REPLY -- Zero point zero is surely the percentage of cyclists who obey stop signs absent other reasons to do so."

"Finally, a cyclist...complaining...about drivers...stopping at stop signs...sorry, the chutzpah is crushing me, I can barely breathe here."

Come on guys, you're making the rest of us look bad! Stop signs don't exist to keep cars from hitting you, they theoretically exist to keep everyone from hitting adorable little children with puppies.
