I don't think a HC would give enough info.
If you read the blog note this part:
"They can be given tickets for lots of things. If they get left hooked (oncoming traffic makes left turn into them) they get a ticket for failure to yield. (Yes that happens to my clients.) If right hooked, they get a ticket for passing on the right. (Yes again.) If hit from behind, they get a ticket for making an improper turn into traffic. (Yup, in fact I have one of these right now.) And then there’s always failure to control speed. I had a guy who was hit in the bike lane, in front of witnesses, by a motorist making an illegal U-turn. Although this happened in broad daylight at 4 PM, the cyclist got a ticket for not having a headlight on his bike! He was given the ticket whilst strapped to a gurney and being loaded into the ambulance."
