Cyclists and the law

A couple of nice quotes in The Times last week about cyclists and the law.

Boris Johnson
Why do you cycle and talk on your mobile at the same time?
"Just as I will never vote to ban hunting, so I will never vote to abolish the free-born Englishman's time-hallowed and immemorial custom, dating back as far as 1990 or so, of cycling while talking on a mobile."

Lord Hoffman (Law Lord)
Do you always obey the Highway Code?
Up to a point, Lord Copper. Sometimes I lose patience at lights when there is obviously nothing in sight.

Not long ago I saw a cyclist so engrossed in a conversation on his mobile phone as he weaved all over the place and almost ended up as a mascot on the front of a double decker bus.
