    That looked like fun, throwing yourself into stuff blocking the lane.
    Probably not too good for the bike.
    But I want to do that.

    Think that`ll work?

    LOL, is he really trying to say that he simply swerved out of the bike lane to avoid an obstacle for just a second and that`s when he got the ticket? Because he doesn`t really come out and say that. But his asshat antics suggest that. And I doubt it.

    as soon as he said, "i`m doing the world a favor riding my bike" i wanted to punch him in the face.

    he was probably riding his bike like an ahole, weaving around (outside of a bike lane) and thats why he got a ticket.

    Every time I come up to a construction zone or a motorist who`s stalled in a lane, I simply run the obstacles over because I drive a tank. Going around is clearly for idiots.

    Likewise, whenever I walk anywhere, I always walk in the street because I`ve frequently come across old people and babies in stroller on the sidewalk. Much rather just walk in the street so I don`t have to walk behind those slow old people.

    Hitting the cop car WAS funny though.

    @Mornaf Depends on the state. Don`t drive cross country thinking this is true. A number of states have wiretapping laws that prevent you from taking audio recordings unless both parties agree to it ahead of time. Even if your cell phone has an option to only record video as opposed to both, it`s entirely likely an annoyed cop could legally take that phone "just in case" in those states.

    Come on guys, I am both a biker and a motorist in nyc. And before you get all anti-hippy on me, I ride a bike because I`m one gridlock away from killing someone and a bike. Anyway, there`s no way a guy riding his bike "like an ahole" can be anywhere remotely as dangerous as half of the cars on the streets. It`s not illegal to ride outside of the bike lane; it`s there to be a safe place for bikers to ride, but in truth it`s anything but safe. Drivers are morons, inconsiderate bastards, or both. I see his point - which I took to be that despite the excuse behind the enforcement, it`s not about safety. I see nyc cops sitting idly by all the time while people do way dumber and more dangerous things with busses, cars and trucks. It`s about money, just like everything else in this city. Someone up the chain said "hey, we already suck money out of new yorkers with parking tickets, red light cameras, and the like...who else can we hit? Oh yeah, bikers! Get on that. Send a bu

    Drivers are morons, inconsiderate bastards, or both.

    In London cyclists are just as likely to be both of those things. Not checking where they are going, cutting a car up (yes a car), not indicating, not stopping at red lights, swerving wildly to name a few.

    I think that it`s less "he drives/rides a ____ therefore he must be a moron" and more "look how they are driving/riding, what a moron".

    People these days are such terrible drivers that a cyclist must ride more defensively than anyone driving a car. Yes the bike lane is there for safety, but how many times have you seen a car in front of you swerving back and forth across the line onto the shoulder of the road, back across into the next lane etc. the truth is that riding in the road is no more dangerous than riding in the bike lane, even the sidewalk is hardly any safer and it`s illegal to ride a bike on the sidewalk except in very specific instances. As for the guy having been able to "go around the objects blocking the bike path" that isn`t the point, the point is that it shouldn`t be blocked like that unless there is work going on in the actual bike lane. I live in a small town and used to ride my bike to work because it only took 15 minutes to get there, after being cut off dozens of times I decided I was safer driving amongst the idiots.

    there are some terrible cyclists too...as they are also many terrible drivers...i`ve seen bicycle that does not follow the traffic light saying they are bicycles but then they ride side to side taking up the whole lane. blocking the traffic.

    well, it is true that cyclist needs to take a more defensive approach just like pedestrians as in the case of emergency or worst case scenario cyclists and pedestrians will take the worst hit.

    his defence against the ticket was he was not riding in bicycle lane because it is not safe. It would have been better if there is something obstructing at the moment and he just showed it. He is clearly just pissed off and the kind of guy that thinks he is always right.

    Wow, guess there aren`t many cyclists on this forum. I for one think this guy makes a great point. Often, the safest thing to do on a bike is to be as predictable as possible so that the those driving cars, the one who CAN`T pay attention because of their incredibly important phone call or cosmetic application process, are more likely to see you coming. And guess what, they sure as hell aren`t looking in the bike lanes. "Bike whaa....?" BIKE LANES!
    So next time you think a cyclist (i.e. someone with a more considerate approach to cycling than bike couriers) is riding too far out into the lane, or cuts to the front of the line at a red light, consider that maybe they want you to see them before you squish them.
    This really is just my opinion, but I`m not a kamikaze cyclist and yet I`ve been hit four times by people making left turns here in Texas who either didn`t see me or just really hate cyclists.

    and just because you`re on a bike, it doesn`t give you the right to run red lights.

    I don`t know what the law is in NY, but in Oregon bicyclists are allowed to ride outside of bike lanes if 1) there is no bike lane on the road you want to ride (except where specifically prohibited) and 2) if there is a bike lane, but it is obstructed by cars, debris, etc. Cyclists are also permitted to take a full lane of traffic if the lane is not wide enough for cars to safely pass a cyclist within the lane.

    Bicyclist piss me off. sometimes they want to be treated like cars, others, they want to be treated like pedestrians. protip: you can`t have it both ways.

    agreed- bicycles, while riding on the road, need to follow the same rules as automobiles.

    and just because you`re on a bike, it doesn`t give you the right to run red lights.

    Again, agreed. Although in a car or on a bike, I`ll run a red from time to time if I`m sure nobody is coming. If I get caught, I`ll pay the fine with no argument.

    I would have also given the guy a ticket for not wearing a helmet.

    Hold on there, cowboy. In New York, only people 14 years old and under are required by law to wear a helmet while on a bicycle. Though maybe you share the same "I`m just gonna make laws up as I go along" mentality as the cop who ticketed the gentleman in the video.

They will weave in front of people, ride perpendicular to pedestrian traffic, go the wrong way, etc. etc. Really, people need to be taught bicycling like they teach Drivers Ed if they wanna be treated like drivers.

    In Denmark the bicycle lanes are on the outer side of the curb.
    It`s a bit risky when passenger side car doors open up in front of you sometimes, but you don`t (usually) get cars parked in the lane and other random stuff interfering with the bicycle lane. It`s really nice! :)

    The thing is, you are a retard for driving a car when you could ride a bike.
    If you were to drive on the sidewalk, other people would get hurt. If you ride on the road, you could get hurt.
    Traffic laws are suited to anuses like you. New traffic laws are in order, heavily restricting the movement of personal-use cars.

    Happened to me minus the ticket, but I think it has to do with me being a female (I think). I was hit by a car when I was riding in the bike lane by a swerving driver and was hospitalized for 2 weeks, with 4 months of recovery to follow. So I began preferring to ride on the sparsely travelled side walk to avoid the same fate. Got pulled over twice and threatened with a ticket.

    So, in this country (United Kingdom), that means having licence plates, paying road tax, having front and back lights and turn signals, having annual safety checks (MOT), having to wear a helmet (just as motorcyclists are legally required to) and requiring that you pass a written and practical test before being allowed to go on the roads.

    Otherwise, they shouldn`t plead for all the rights of a road user, whilst trying to avoid all of those responsibilities of being a road user.

    @ Musuko42

    License plates are unreasonable for bicycles. Bicycles tend to get bought and sold really quickly, making registering them a nightmare. Also, where would you put a license plate on a bike? There really is no space. Some colleges use stickers that you can register with the police, but it`s really only a way to return the bike in case an idiot steals it, and it`s a free service.

    And as for road taxes, any taxes received from cyclists should be negligible, since we barely put any wear or tear on the road - we are simply not heavy enough to do the same amount of damage cars do and should be taxed accordingly.

    I don`t know what kind of safety checks you could possibly have on a bike, there simply isn`t anything there to check other than "do my brakes work?"

    I agree to a certain degree with your statement that a written test should be passed, but as for a practical, every time you ride you take a practical exam. If you haven`t been ki

    "Bicycles tend to get bought and sold really quickly, making registering them a nightmare."

    This is no argument. Cars and motorcycles get bought and sold reasonably frequently and painlessly too.

    "Also, where would you put a license plate on a bike?"

    At the back, just under the seat, or on a mount on the rear mud guard. Similar positioning to motorcycles. There`s plenty of space.

    "And as for road taxes, any taxes received from cyclists should be negligible"

    Agreed.

    Incidentally, I missed out one thing they should have like any other road users: INSURANCE.

    "I don`t know what kind of safety checks you could possibly have on a bike, there simply isn`t anything there to check other than "do my brakes work?""

    Brakes, lights, tyres, wheels, steering, suspension. Basically, the same things that happen in a motorcycle MOT in the UK.

    As far as the test, in the UK there is a thing called the Cycle Proficiency test: non-mandatory training and test you can do to be safe on the roads.

    I suggest it become mandatory, bikes become licenced, fitted with lights and signals, taxed, tested and insured.

    In exchange, bicycles are treated as regular road users, afforded all the rights and restrictions (no running reds!) as such.

    THEN they will deserve the respect on the roads they are asking for.

    @Musuko42: So what you`re saying is all of these should come first (licence plates, paying road tax, having front and back lights and turn signals, having annual safety checks (MOT), having to wear a helmet ) are for which "rights" on the road?
    Turning signals, someone`s arms are too hard to see? As for light, yes I agree they must be seen at night. But really there`s a big difference between a bicycle crashing and a car or even a motorbike, I do know human power can reach 86mph but that`s not on every road. I can only assume you live in either the south or a built up area (a city?). I can see the reasoning for road tax, but really bike can make their own way well without roads, come to think about it I think roads would be 1/2 the width and nothing more than a thin layer of hardcore, after all they`re very light. Maybe have a look at where local road funding comes from, it`s not road TAX it`s vehicle excise duty and is based on emissions, bikes have ZERO! :)

    The thing is, you are a retard for driving a car when you could ride a bike.
    Yeah, because when I live out in the middle of nowhere, seven miles from the nearest anything, let alone my job, it makes perfect sense for me to ride a bike everywhere.

    Because I don`t have things to do at certain times, a preference for smelling relatively nice when I get to my destination, I don`t burn like hell under the sun, etc.

    Enjoy being a pretentious European prick while you live in some city where everything you`ll ever need is within walking distance.

    I`d like to see you keep your attitude when you move to the middle of American nowhere.

    You`re not supposed to ride there.

    "If you ride on the road, you could get hurt."

    Your choice for sharing the road with multi-ton vehicles.

    "Traffic laws are suited to anuses like you."

    Traffic laws were written for automobiles, just as the highways were constructed for them. Had we stopped at bikes, you`d be riding along a dirt track.

    "New traffic laws are in order,"

    No, just less self-righteous, pretentious a$$wipes on bikes.

    @MeGrendel I`m not "having a go" but do you think if a cars were not around and everyone used bikes that there would only be dirt tracks? You do not think that the same "evolution" of the road would continue? After all asphalt was being laid as soon as it was found, before the motorcar, cobble roads? Hey even tow paths near cannals. It`s a myth that road would only be around for card, motorways yes, but road in general no, they would be around, ask the Romans, :D

    Don`t be a douche. Stay in the bike lane unless there`s an obstruction. Then move out of it, ride past, then get back in.
    And if something is in your way...stop.

    zeegrr-"It`s sad when cops don`t know the law."

    The cop knew the law, and that the cyclist was breaking it, so he gave him a ticket.

    "It`s sadder when idiots pay illegal fines."

    The idiot knew that the fine was not illegal, that`s why he paid it.

    He then went on to make as a$$ of himself on video.

    If something`s in your way, you stop. In the case of a cyclist, the best thing to do is to dismount the bike and walk it around the obstruction. That is the LEGAL thing to do.

    But this self-ritious git is `better than thou` and also `saving the planet`, so he`s too good for that.

    Now, in the case of a motorist. If there is an obstruction in the road does he: 1) Slam into it like this idiot? 2) Drive over the sidewalk going around it? or 3) STOP, and consider his options?

    Now, for a motorist, any option other than #3 would get you a ticket and/or arrested.

    So it should be for the cyclis

    @jsatan

    "So what you`re saying is all of these should come first...are for which "rights" on the road?"

    To be treated, by law, as equal users of the road: expected to follow the rules of the road, but also afforded all the rights and protections that other road users have (such as claiming against the third party`s insurance if they`re hit in an accident).

    "But really there`s a big difference between a bicycle crashing and a car or even a motorbike"

    Not as big as you might think. In a collision with a pedestrian or motorcyclist, a bicycle can cause serious harm. And even with cars and lorries, a bicycle can still cause collisions between other vehicles.

    I grant you that it`s uncommon, so the insurance rates would reflect that by being very low.

    I conceed that road tax would be zero for bicycles.

    PS: I live in Yorkshire. Many hills! You have to be a special kind of hardcore to ride a bicycle here. I`m too much of a sappy weakling to do so.

    Also I`m 14 miles from my place of work.

    I have no issues with bicyclists, though. As a motorcyclist myself, I respect them and their risky position out on the roads.

    I would respect them more, however, if they were licence-plated (accountable) and licenced (trained and tested) and insured (responsible).

    Seriously...the bike lanes are there for a purpose. If there`s an obstruction, you move out of the lane to avoid the obstruction, and back into the lane once the obstruction is cleared.
    Let`s see...how about I drive my car on the wrong side of the road just because sometimes there`s obstructions in my lane.

    And again, this is a case of the police officers not being paid to interpret the law, they`re paid to enforce the law...hence why they`re called law ENFORCEMENT officers. If the law needs interpretation, seek legal counsel.

    By paying for a fine, you`re automatically admitting guilt. You can`t admit guilt, then later change to not-guilty.

    Woden! I hate self-righteous people.

    @Musuko42, lol. Yorkshire, I`ll give you that it`s not the south, but if you`re from Sheffield then I understand the hills. I can`t agree that all should be treated equal on the roads, after all not all on the road now are treated equal, HGV are limited etc. @MeGrendel yeah, come`on bike were not around during the Roman times, my point was road were built for other reasons too and that roads would be better than dirt tracks even without cars (I would have a guess that that track is ok for a Mtn bike.. On the point of insurance, I`ll agree on that front, but that doesn`t mean the law should be against you. Can we ban horses too?
