Maybe it didnt mean legal laws but sir isaac newtons laws of motion, "An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion" so I dont think it was a coincidence. If I made the bike laws there would only be a few, You're entitled to your space on the road. Yield to the right of way always. & dont be a dick.

Bike Law says you can run red lights as long as you slow down a little.

My wife is a lawyer and speeds sometimes. Coincidence, irony, or just going with the flow?
Yesterday I had coffee with a lawyer. He didnít break any rules or laws that I know. He also was not wearing a jersey.

I know a guy who was a train conductor and is now a flight attendant. He was never a lawyer.

Out here, we have PanAm Railways because the guy who bought the line happened to own the airline's trademark. It's a really confusing livery, especially since it's a fairly short line in New England, not exactly "pan" anything.
I used to know their General Counsel when they were Springfield Terminal. We were co-defendats in a case. I also remember flying Pan Am as a kid.

God I love tucking in behind riders like that.

If you can find someone to buy out Timothy Mellon, you could be a very popular person around these parts.

It's not necessarily illegal to run a red light in the UK.
I'm guessing it is where this guy was..?

He's not in Idaho or Delaware, so it is illegal.
