    It's not illegal at all.
    No cop will stop me, if I do it right in front of them.

    Won't be any worse than non smoker, alcohol drinkers that toss their cans all over the side of the road but for some reason they are exempt from the high taxes and public outrage even though they recklessly kill innocent people all the time.

    Time for a tax on alcohol that equals 100% of the sales price.

    .
    And you know, where I live, roads with one single lane for each direction of traffic has a speed limit of 30 km/hr, a pace I can easily maintain on my bicycle for extended periods of time. If you want to pass me, you are in excess of the speed limit. On other roads, there are two lanes in each direction with a speed limit of 50 km/hr. The right lane is for all vehicles and the left lane is for cars only. Don't like the slower vehicles, stay in the left lane...

    Many speed limits are for revenue generation, not for public safety.
    The prevailing speed is the right speed, usually faster than a bike.

    Anywhere I have ever lived, it IS illegal...

    And taxes on alcohol wouldn't bother me. I only drink once a year... Kinmen Kaoliang at Lunar New Year with my family... good stuff...

    not in downtown areas, and you don't know how fast I can ride a bike... and yes, speed limits in urban areas definately are about public safety...
