When they have a point to make, they don't care who they hurt.

Now, that's putting your mouth where your money is!

I've found the best way to get a man to do something is to tell him that under no circumstances should he do it. If you tell that to a woman she'll think okay I won't do it. If you tell that to a man he'll think, I wonder why she doesn't want me to do that? I'll show her who's boss! I'll do it anyway! Works every time.

Those hardcore eco-cyclists are some of the biggest, most self righteous a-hos in the world. Open car doors were made for them.

Loudmouth! I'm sure you would never intentionally open a car door when an eco-cyclist was coming your way. If you accidentally do this make sure to also open the trunk for proper, 'green', disposal of the remains.

ncindy - I have found that the best way to get a woman to do something is to tell her she's not allowed to.

True, pogo. Very true. Of course it depends on the something you want done.

In NYC the meter twinkies will ticket you for parking at one of their broken meters too, even if you've stuffed money into it. But... It's keeping the zombies employed in hard times.

The trouble is sometimes that when they really do have a point to make of course you are never really sure if this is the point that they want to make or not and the BS that goes along with it sometimes. True, they don't care who they hurt.


Saw that on the local news last night and thought it was very clever (if painful). My favorite was the police car parked in the bike lane.

But then, sadly, I find most cops have a "do as I say, not as I do" attitude. They park their private cars anywhere - bus stops, fire hydrants, the wrong side of the street on alternate side parking days - and know that as long as they put an NYPD placard in the window the odds of being ticketed are very small.

We have a case right now in my little town where an off duty policeman was driving and a woman in another car cut him off. He was so mad he pulled in front of her car and pulled his gun! So of course he's been suspended. I can't really say I blame him. I get pretty mad when people cut me off too.

I'd have mailed in the $10 fine. But then, I'm not a bicyclist. And I get to drive in the Big Boy Lane.

I asked a St. Johns County deputy about riding on the sidewalk instead of the bike lane. He said it wasn't strictly legal but I wasn't going to get a ticket unless I forced someone off the walk.
He and I agreed a person could get killed by those cars speeding by.
Strangely, on the farm, there's no place to ride a bike.

And he was humming that great song by Queen...

Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle

Stupid is as stupid does.

Metro-whiner. You broke the law - pay your fine, wuss. Most of the things you 'hit,' including the cop car, were there to warn you about dangerous things in your way.

*waves to Just Ducky!*

It is usually illegal for a motor vehicle to travel in a bike lane, but not the reverse as long as traffic laws are obeyed. The cop committed Official Misconduct. Good luck getting a prosecutor to do anything about it. Anyone who rides a bike in NYC should consider being surrounded by bulldozers as moving protection. From the cops.

*Waves to Siouxie & AWBH!*

More NYC cops vs. bikes.
