Cyclists only jump red lights for their own safety, I understood.

Suffered head injuries - obviously not wearing a helmet.

It's usually a good idea to check it's clear first.

Then why do they proclaim such a thing?

Some cyclists justify RLJ by saying they believe it to be safer for them, however that is only a minority.
Because a few cyclists claim something, does not make it true for all cyclists.
Is that too hard to understand?

Better to obey the law & not do it.

Nope, that's also been posted here dozens of times.

It certainly isn't a minority. If I ever saw a cyclist stop at a red
light, I'd let the media know immediately. It would be front page news
& make News at Ten.

Because a few cyclists claim something, does not make it true for all cyclists.

Psycholists are indoctrinated at an early age and all have the same
thought patterns.
