A dim view of bicyclists

WATERTOWN

David McCaffrey of Watertown lashes out at bicyclists in a Letter to the Editor today, responding to another letter recently by bicyclist Marika Plater of Newton.

"She gives a list of bicycle rules. It's more of a wish list. Not only do bicyclists disobey the rules, their aggressive actions are a real threat to pedestrians. While driving on Mass. Ave. in Cambridge recently, I observed a bicyclist swerving in and out of traffic at high speed. When he came to the red light, he blew right through, narrowly missing an elderly woman. I observed four more bicyclists blow through the same red light," McCaffrey writes.
