Enforce rules on cyclists

Recently a motorist was cited for failure to yield while turning into a parking lot when he hit a bicyclist riding on the sidewalk. Why wasn’t the cyclist cited? Does the cyclist not belong on the street?

I’m tired of the ambiguous rules when it comes to cyclists. No helmets, riding against traffic, on the sidewalk, on the streets, running traffic lights. How about some consistency here? Are they to be considered pedestrians or are they to be treated like all other traffic? Drivers need to know.
