Exactly right, 3:13. Those people on bikes think the laws do not pertain to them. Especially when they block an entire lane and will not let traffic to go past. Maryland law says they have to be as far to the right of the center line so as not to impede traffic flow. But thanks to the university and the police, the law is not enforced on these fools.
