To the drivers of Greenfield and surrounding areas, I mean do you people have any idea how to use a four-way stop?

I mean to say you don’t do what it’s called the Massachusetts Roll and you should always come to a complete stop.

When you are coming up behind a bike at a stop sign or roadway, the bike rider is considered as much of a car as you are. So try looking your state and local driving laws up for Massachusetts. I just had this woman from Vermont pull up right alongside me when I was at the four-way stop at Franklin and Church Street.

There are plenty of bikes out there that don’t follow the rules either. Well for one you wear a helmet and you are to stop at a four-way or other stops. When you come to a crosswalk, walk your bike across; then you get back on it.

I mean you people really need to start looking up state laws and start following them.
