Does infrastructure design lead to bad behavior on bikes?

Lloyd Alter of TreeHugger weighs in on if cyclists should play by rules made for cars:

Toronto City councillor Karen Stintz gets a $110 ticket for rolling through a stop sign that didn’t exist. Toronto’s own Dorothy Rabinowitz, Judith Timson is outraged that Stintz is fighting the ticket, writing in the Star: “She’ll get off on a technicality. Know what you should do Karen? Set an example, pay up, and quit rolling through stops. It’s against the law.” Timson says “I’m a motorist … and I’ve come to the end of silently tolerating cyclists who break the law.”

Timson and the hundreds of commenters on every article attacking cyclists miss the point about why they roll through stop signs. It’s because the infrastructure is designed to control cars.
