City orders cyclists to stop imitating.

The City of Toronto issued by-law 3045-49. It orders cyclists to immediately stop imitating the City's car drivers. Cyclists will no longer be able to;
1) Ride on sidewalks
2) Blow red lights
3) Ride the wrong way on one-way streets
4) Operate a bicycle impaired
5) Ride while using a cell phone
The CAA is reportedly very upset with the City because it still allows cyclists to speed and run down the elderly in crosswalks. The CAA said this should remain a privilege of tax paying motorists.

I agree with cracking down on each of these infractions, except traveling the wrong way on a one way street.
That should be allowed on quiet residential streets, obviously not on Richmond/Adelaide.
I'm glad no mention was made about stopping at stop signs, that would be nonsense.
