thoughts on transportation cycling
is that a makeshift wheel lock?I like bike cops. I wish we had bike cops. That would be really cool
how funny! now we just need to see a police bike with a basket full of doughnuts.i too wish there were more bike cops, but bike cops don't necessarily make good cyclists. i got stuck behind one in union square (a horrendously bike un-friendly section of somerville), and began counting all the no-no's, from riding on the sidewalk (illegal in major squares, with signs to remind you) to riding in the dark without a headlight/taillight, to not using hand signals. for shame, somerville bike cop.
I found out that in Fort Worth there are bike cops and there are security guards dressed up like bike cops. The real ones ride and act profesionally. The others. - like they are clueless. Perhaps it's the same elsewhere.
