    Bike lights

    I got a ticket a while back for not having a bike light, it was around 10 on a weeknight. A cop passes me, flips it, and actually pulls me over. Got it in the mail today: ITS $185 ****ING DOLLARS. I find the fee absolutely absurd. Just felt like warning the people who don't always roll with a light. And ranting.

    What would it cost if you got hit by a car because they couldn't see you?

    You're from Davis.... police are exploiting how the majority of UCD students there ride bikes.

    But yea, you should've known better... especially when you live perhaps in the bike capital of the US....

    I live in Davis. The bike lanes are as wide as the streets.

    I don't understand why it's considered to be the bike capital. Yeah tons of people bike at UCD, but apart from that, I don't see it as a HUGE biking town. Not to mention there isn't a single competent shop around...

    Sorry never went there before due to a lack of interest over there.

    But anyway Davis is synonymous in California for bikes...
