Traffic cop tells me to get off the rode
I was getting off the Brooklyn Bridge on the Brooklyn side (I know, the BB, my first mistake...). After getting off the bike path I position myself in the street in the left turn lane so that I can make a left onto Tillary. The light is red at this point, so I'm just waiting. For anyone who doesn't know, this is a very busy intersection and during rush hour there are traffic cops who direct traffic, sometimes contradictory to the lights. Anyway, light still red, the traffic cop yells at me to move over. I comply. He then signals to the car behind me to make a left turn. EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED TO DO. I then had to take the crosswalk instead, which is a major inconvenience since the traffic is really bad and the lights take a long time to change.
I really considered going over to the cop and getting his badge number, but it wasn't worth it. Especially considering absolutely nothing would have been done had I reported him.
