    10:1 the cyclist was some drunk who lost his license. They drive into and in front of these cars on purpose. Instant law suit. So the guy can't drive a car, but we let him drive a vehicle that is a certain lawsuit no matter how minor the hit. I've seen these guys do this on more than one occasion. Drunk on the road is drunk on the road. They shouldn't be permitted to bicycle either.
