Re: becoming frightened by these bikes
Why are you worried about others so much?
If they are breaking the law, its on them. If a law enforcement officer wants to pull you over, he/she will do it, and figure out the rational later.
Yes, there are those that are irresponsible riders, disregarding the law when it is in there way. But complain when that others behave the same. This dynamic plays out everywhere. Not just motorized bicycle riders.
For example, there are motorbike fabricators/mechanics that have a brick & mortar location, that have a business license, pay taxes on every cycle they sell or maintain.
They may feel that those that build bikes "under the radar" are going to impact their future business. And they may be right.
