At the very least, if the moron on the bike was not going to be charged even though clearly at fault, they should make him go to school to learn how to ride.

The article said the motorcyclist was at fault. Why denigrate the bicycle rider?

Ralph, send them our way to Kanan & Thousand Oaks Blvd. for to catch those that use the bicycle lane from Hillrise to the Blvd. as a third lane.
