    you are right, it is not only cyclist also pedestrian crossing the streets against the lights and kids playing chicken jumping in front of you car, i have seen few idiots getting run over either cause they cross against the lights or the are talking or texting and don’t see where they going

    The Detroit News reports insurance premiums have declined 5 years in a row. I can’t remember a cycle like this ever. Of course, not everybody has had a decline, mine actually went up high but found “Clearance Auto” that I could easily reduce it

    Ive seen alot of stupid 16 year olds just pull out in front of people just daring you to slam on your brakes and miss them.

    What happened to fair and balanced reporting?
