Nowhere in your March bicycle-sign article do I read anything about enforcement of the laws currently on the books covering bicycle safety.

                  As an everyday motorist on A1A, I regularly have to contend with large “pods” of bicyclists frequently riding three and four abreast. A light tap of my horn to warn the riders of my intention to pass quite often results in rude gestures
and derisive shouts from the throng.

     I have to wonder whether strict enforcement of the “no more than two abreast
riders” and “three feet clearance” statutes, as well as rider observance of
traffic signals, would make eight more signs along A1A superfluous.

     I suppose we could always close A1A to vehicular traffic to appease the bike
lobby. Coming events cast their shadow before them.
