Bike Safety Month?

I got an email this morning with the “great” news that the cops have been patrolling the local parks handing out speeding tickets and/or arresting traffic violators. Great!

or not

I of course responded to said email to the effect that I was not understanding how cops fining and arresting drivers for victimless crimes was making anything safer. As well, it appears to be more of revenue generation for the city disguised as bike advocacy.

To top it all off, the email ended stating that cops would be roaming the city today citing any bike riders that weren’t obeying the “rules of the road” as they are called. Well, much to my dismay, the 3 cops I ran lights in front of on my ride home this afternoon didn’t get the memo cause I didn’t get stopped. Maybe next time.

Be careful, it’s a jungle out there.
