DERRICK Z. JACKSON wants me to challenge fellow bicyclists to get them to give more respect in order for the city to provide a safer environment for riding my bike (“To get respect, cyclists need to show some, too,” Op-ed, June 23). What Jackson apparently does not understand is that oblivious bicyclists slicing through four-way stops and blasting through pedestrians are not bicyclists that care to have my respect, his respect, or anyone else’s. They prefer the risk-taking environment. I have a right to safety regardless of whether there are yahoos who don’t see eye-to-eye with me on safety.
