“You are not stuck in traffic. You are traffic”

"You are not stuck in traffic. You are traffic” is a pro-bike saying that has been printed on many images. “Your not Stuck in traffic; You are traffic” was posted on the newsgroup rec.humor on June 20, 1995. The saying has been popular in Germany since at least 2005.
