The cartoon by Matt from the Daily Telegraph shows the riders on the Tour de France passing through London (note the Gherkin in the background). A man comments to his wife, "Typical, 200 cyclists and not one of them stops at a red light."
There's a popular misconception in England that cyclists are less law abiding, and more careless, than motorists. The red light is, of course, a traffic light. When the light is red, all traffic is supposed to stop, but a minority of cyclists give the rest a bad reputation by 'jumping' the red light. However, see here for a possible explanation.
Typical is used for saying that you are not surprised that something bad has happened. • It's typical! Just when we might have won, two of our players got injured. • The show's been cancelled? Typical!
