NYC, where cops park in bike lanes, then ticket you for not riding in said lanes.

I'm gonna jump on the bike blogger bandwagon (BBB) here and post this because it is amusing. I especially like municipalities that think a good bike lane is one between moving traffic and parked cars.

The only issue I take with this video is the guy says to the cop, "I'm doing the world a favor by riding my bike". While I think it is good to ride your bike, you don't make any friends or converts by riding on your high horse all the time. Give me a break, you're riding your bike, probably instead of walking and taking the subway, you're not walking on water here. Plus most people who ride their bike all the time love it, so it's not like he's making a sacrifice.
