Your View: Enforce the laws for Alexandria’s cyclists

To the editor:
I no longer drive into Old Town between March and December. I once did, 10 to 15 times per year.

I ceased after almost being hit by a biker running a Stop sign near the Torpedo Factory. He never slowed down or even glanced at me while I was stopped at the intersection.

Reckless bicyclists blow through Stop signs habitually. Businesses suffer, because I don’t want the liability if I
whack one or if they whack me. Perhaps the city should enforce the laws for bikes, rather than taking car lanes and on-street parking for the 1 percent of residents who bike?
