Should cyclists follow the same rules than cars?

Read today:
BBC NEWS | England | Cyclists 'don't obey road laws'

IMHO, why should cylists follows a road legislation designed a long time ago and mainly for cars?

For instance, for cyclists to start ahead of a green light is much safer and allows to avoid being mowed down by lorries and busses.

The insurance law need to change to give automatic rights to cyclists vs. cars, it's how it works in Netherlands.

Resistance, un-informed comments and inadequate cyling infrastructures (like paths stopping where one needs them most) usually comes from automobilists who have never cycled.
