    State College's "corps" actually looks like they know what they're doing....

    "...access to all the accessories available in a patrol car..."

    I'd like to see a 12ga shotgun slung on a bike!

    Well do to the lovely tax cuts in my city, as well as the $2 billion dollar computer upgrade, which is still NOT WORKING, they have disbanded our bike cops.

    what about our own bikeforums bike cop, lightcycles?
    the bike patrol around here seems pretty cool but I've never spoken to any of them.
    Leave your treadmill power trip behind.

    The bike cops here are clueless. They try to enforce this BS law about riding on a specified bike path over a bridge that is clearly marked "no bikes".
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    LOL No I think that means they are under prepared in their patrol cars. They don't have shot guns on their bikes. I think they are just pumping up the corp so people think they are required. Other than for Arts Fest and home PSU football games I really don't think we need bike cops but whatever.

    Perhaps you should ease off the bullchit gas pedal.
