It doesn't appear to be fixed, so they could do the horizontal cranks thing.

If they can build up enough momentum to get over a speed bump, that is.

Aarrgh. Stupid police. Go bust someone for speeding.

What was the safety issue? Someone might crash into them? They could get hit on a bike. They might crash into someone? In slow motion?

Obstruction... possibly - but cars have to go round bikes. They were going around the block just get your head out your arse.

People speed all the time and no-one says anything (besides joking about it) which is a much bigger safety issue than one pedal car.

With a situation like that, you need to know all applicable laws, and carry a video recorder. Only by knowing the laws can you keep the cops away when doing something that agitates them.

Yep, but they didn't know the laws. Only by knowing your rights, and threatening to sue the cops for getting in your way, can you do something odd like that, or in my case open carry in states where it isn't often seen.

Interested in the details of your story. What they try to arrest you or something?
