A friend of mine got a stern talking to from a policeman recently. The cop informed him that cyclists have no place on the roads and threatened to ticket him for riding on the roads. After a few minutes of this, the cop decided to let my friend go with a warning. He never did get my friend's name. Maybe he should have, before he started making up new laws to threaten my friend with.
As it turns out, my friend is a fairly high public official in the city where this event occurred and had a little chat the chief of police. They went over the pertinent laws and agreed that said officer is due for a little refresher course on bicycle traffic law.
