As a cyclist, I've definitely given a few folks "the glare" or let them know they give us all a bad name by crossing Maple without the crossing light for pedestrians. I defend cyclists all the time because statistics show they're not at fault in a majority of car/bike accidents, but this one's all on the cyclist, completely avoidable accident.
