While riding to work one morning the local police pulled me over and told me that I should ride closer to the curb. As I looked at the street closer to the curb I noticed all kinds of pot holes and several large street drains. It was not safe! A friend of mine told me that the police told him to ride on the ice covered sidewalk rather than the street!
With the price of gas going up to $4.00 one would think that more people may try to commute to work by bike and that the police would be more aware of the cycling laws in their state. In the Motorcity the car still rules!
What has been your experience with the police?
Gas, 69 cents, the price of a can of beans.
