Ride in the bike lane, arsehole

Bike lanes are supposed to be there to protect bike riders, right?

Well, apparently not.

In Auckland, bike riders have to share their bike lanes with the biggest behemoths on the road, i.e., buses, piloted all too often by drivers disinterested in anything around them.

No wonder so many cyclists ride elsewhere.

But ride in anything other than a bus lane bike lane, in Manhattan at least, and you get a ticket.

Casey Neistat was issued a ticket by NYPD for not riding in the bike lane and tried to explain to the cop that sometimes the lanes are blocked. But the officer didn’t care much about Casey’s opposition. Casey Neistat responded to the asinine ticket with a brilliant video.
