    Just boarded my second airplane on the way to Pittsburgh with the Bromton neatly tiucked in the overhead compartment. Only one question about it, and he just said to let him know if it doesn't fit so he can check it.

    Is anyone aware of a (credible) similar guide that would be applicable in California?
    What To Do If You Get Hit By A Car While Biking In NYC
    (specifically, the parts about insurance etc; "get witnesses and call 911" is pretty universal)

    Does SDPD publish any stats on traffic violations? Just curious if there's any way to find out how many 3' violations have resulted in citations. I suspect the number is very low, but it would be good to see if even a small number of citations had been issued.

    How Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

    By James L. Pocrass, Esq.
    Pocrass & De Los Reyes LLP

    A reporter asked me if it were true that, as he was told by a police officer, that you could be ticketed for riding your bike the wrong way in a crosswalk.

    The question flabbergasted me. Since when are crosswalks one-directional? Pedestrians walk in crosswalks in both directions. That’s why there are buttons and/or signals on both sides of the street.

    Requiring cyclists to only travel with the flow of traffic would lead to absurd results. You would have to cross two streets to go across the street.

    A bicyclist in New Orleans gets a ticket for impeding while crossing a narrow 4-lane bridge that has no bike lane or shoulder. She is also cited for not wearing a helmet and not having a reg sticker.

    Her lawyer managed to get all charges dropped, but not without some impressive effort.

    Note also that she has no reasonable alternative route. There's another bridge, but it's arguably worse than this one.

    billd:Jury: Bicyclist not an “Obstruction”

    http://www.bikelaw.com/2016/08/24/illinois-bike-accident-attorney-wins/


    It's still B.S. and an insult to the justice system that the cyclist was found 30% at fault.

    Cyclist gets doored in Chicago (video). Not only does the officer refuse to make a report -- he threatens to ticket the cyclist for riding outside a bike lane, which isn't even illegal in Chicago.
