Long story short: yesterday, riding downhill into Englewood, NJ, taking the lane. Unmarked cop flashes lights, boxes me into the parking lane. Old timer, distinguished looking, like a police chief, tells me that I need to say as far right as possible. I opened my big mouth and told him he doesn't know the law and that it's as far right as practical. He wants nothing of that and tells me that I could cause an accident, never mind that 1) he boxed me into a dangerous spot and 2) had to go over the speed limit to do it (I was going downhill, remember) and 3) at my speed taking the lane is well within the interpretation of the actual law. WTF is it with these idiots?
The law, BTW:
Edit: two lanes each way, to boot!Every person riding a bicycle on a roadway shall ride as near to the right roadside as practicable exercising due care when passing a standing vehicle or one proceeding in the same direction.
