The Clash Of The Egos: A Multi Author Argumentative Essay On Autos Vs. Bicyclists Vs. Pedestrians

567 words - 3 pages

Autos vs. bicyclists vs. pedestrians each think they own the road. Have you ever been in an accident involving an automobile, bicycle, or pedestrian?The risk of getting into such an accident is higher in large cities for example, Seattle, where all types of transportation are utilized. Whenever I drive in the city, I've noticed a good portion of the cyclists have very poor manners when it comes to sharing the road with others such as automobiles. There has been so many times where I have been cut off, yelled at and even given the middle finger from someone on a bike because I don't drive exactly how they think I should. Letting a cyclist weave in and out of ...view middle of the document...

Just the other day I was in a heated debate with AJ about who has the right of way, autos or cyclists. Obviously it will be a never-ending battle no matter where you live. So here's AJ's side of autos vs. bicyclists vs. pedestrians.Automobile operators are down right obnoxious! Always in a hurry commanding their right of way. Take for instance last summer when a man in a full sized pick-up truck was setting at a red light, only looking to his left, hit me on my bike while in the pedestrian cross walk. If you don't look like another automobile, many drivers are just not looking for you.While I come from the perspective of both an automobile operator and a cyclist, it comes right down to the human being always being in a hurry to get to where they're going first. Auto operators often feel the road was built for autos, so they wear the crown. Cyclists often clinch to the law that pedestrians always have the right away. But wearing that crown is a whole lot easier to get yourself killed. No matter how you slice it, right or wrong, the automobile has all the attributes to overcome you.We have an elaborate system in place that allows all three forms of transportation to get to where they're going. But where that system starts to break down is with every individual that feels the need to rewrite the rules to fit only their busy schedule. So the blame goes --not-- to the form of transportation, the blame rests squarely on the individual(s) who doesn't want to play fair ball with the rest of the players. With this in mind, what kind of player are you?
