Running More Reds in Noodge City

On the bikeride to work the other day, stopped at a red light at 1st and Denny, a dude in a truck to the left motioned me over. Initially I thought he was going to ask for directions but no.

Dude: Can I ask you something? Why do you feel you can go through that red light back there?

[Pause]

Me: You ever drive on the freeway?
Dude [unsure]: Yeah?
Me: You ever go over the speed limit?
Dude: OK, but ...
Me: Same thing.

He didn't think it was. I did. We talked over each other until the light turned green and we went our separate ways.

I've written before why I think running a red for a bike and speeding on the freeway for a car is similar. You can read it here.

The irony is where we had the above conversation. Stopped at a red light.
