Surface Streets Are Not Freeways!

Biking in BaltimoreB' Spokes: While I was biking up Charles Street some idiot car driver tells me I am not allowed to bike on highways. So I respond "Oh you're thinking of freeways." and then gave him directions to 83. The look on his face was priceless.

Two things to note from this is 1) He had enough time and space to comfortably drive along side me during this conversation and traffic was still able to get around the both of us. 2) 83 is typically doing crawling speeds at this time due to too many cars. Too many cars are the problem and not too many bikes!
Another story: The guy behind me is honking his fool head off for about one minute when I come to a double parked truck unloading. I slip off to the left of the truck and Mr. honking is no longer an issue. Nice situational awareness guy.

6 months jail time for riding a dirt bike, kill a cyclist with your inattentive car driving... well a small fine will cover that

Biking in BaltimoreGranted dirt bikes are annoying but still... jail time for them and non for people who kill by motor vehicle?
