The saddest thing is, from what I understand, police and local cyclists have known about this operation for years. Of course, the cops have always had better things to worry about. And no, we don't have the death penalty in Canada anymore.

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
