Default Video-Ticket for not riding in Bike Lane

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzE-...layer_embedded



Great video. But why didn't the guy fight the ticket by showing the judge some of the obstacles in the bike lane? Also, that NYC cop was pretty nice.

I don't think I'd have the guts to go crashing into everything that is blocking the bike lane just to prove a point.

And yeah, I would have gone to court with my video presentation.

I really hope that at least some people learn something from this and stop parking in the bike lane. I'm sure he freaked out the pedestrians walking by.

His poor bike!!!!

He is a real stuntman. I might do some of the rolls he did, after I drank a six pack. When he went over his handlebars and rolled into the back of the truck.... he put himself in a different class there.

Fun video. +1
