    Why did you run 3 red lights in front of cops? you're lucky they didn't slap you with all of them like they would have here, as well as taking demerit points off your license. I run red lights and all, but I don't know what kind of situation I could put myself in to burn 3 reds and still have the cops see it all... good luck paying that off!

    where did you get the ticket?

    i figure that every time i leave the house, i blow on average, a dozen red lights and stop signs. i ride almost every day, but not when it's really nasty out, figure... 340 days a year, and i've been riding in the city for about 8 years now, so that's about 32,640 violations. $200 each - i owe the city of new york a cool $6,528,000.

    I think I'll incorporate it into my repertoire.
    Sounds like someone got their ego bruised.
    I hope this haiku soothes.

    I donít stop for red
    I stop for blue and it hurts
    Cops are all cocktards

    i ride up 6th ave every morning (6th ave and 27th)...i don't barrel through intersections or anything but i'll go through a red light if its quiet or whatever. I didn't pass any cops, but all of a sudden some dude pulls up next to me and tells me to pull over. and boom 150 for the red light and 40 for no brakes, even though i ride a front brake. then after i ran to some dumbass jaywalking my green light.

    on a much more serious note, hangin out with mattsimbols has greatly increase my vocabulary, mostly including words that would probably get me banned from the forums.

    well I'm sure you can fight the no brakes issue.
    --------
    And I guess I'm lucky. The other day a cop was behind me, saw me blow through 3 reds, he just sped up to me and yelled through his megaphone.
    I am such a stubborn bastard, I kept blowing through reds afterwards but I kept looking behind my back for a sneaky cop. I guess blowing through red lights ahs become second nature, I'm terrible! I always slow, yield, then go through. Unless it's late night or a pretty abandoned roadway which means I don't slow.

    the price we must pay for fashion!
    PS> the tickets suck, as they always do. Never seem to be fair as far as costs either, considering parking in a Bike lane is a $12 fine...total garbage.

    My friend was running a redlight on his bike, because it was about to change green. A car on the other road sped up to make the yellow light. My friend got hit by the car and flew 20 feet, he was knocked unconcious. He was ok, he just got a concussion and his face was really bloody / scratched up. Well, anyways at the hospital the cop gave him a $130 ticket for running the light.

    Man that really sucks! Yeah its $200 for running a red in NYC. And you guys that don't live here have no idea, the police actually target us, actually have orders to target us from higher up. It really sucks. Peds never stop for reds which is very dangerous to them and us. Cars blow through the intersection right after the light changes to red. And Shiznaz, there are like forty thousand cops here and Manhattan is not that big, meaning every where you go, there are tons of cops. Everyone here breaks the law, just like no one in LA drives the speed limit, it is just a given. I wouldn't complain if cops ticketed everyone equally and fairly, but they don't. And they aren't at all concerned with public safety, just meeting their quota.

    can any ny'ers attest to this? i probably won't go through the hassle, but i seem to remember hearing about all kinds of extraneous bike riding laws/requirements, like having a bell, riding with only one headphone, etc. etc.

    it was be so much fun to respond to "You ran three red lights, your lucky I'm only writin you up for one" with "Yeah, and you're lucky i don't punch you in he face and make you **** teeth." or something like that. sure you'd get in trouble, but c'mon. good times.

    or challenging the cops to a race, winner gets the losers ride.
