eurotrader: So the guy on the bike got caught by a cop in a car. He must be new to riding in NYC and a little dim witted or have poor vision if he did not notice the cop watch him go through 4 red lights, so he does deserve the tickets. Unless the cop knew him and had a dislike I can not picture any cop getting out of the car to chase him down very far.
notmtwain: If it gets him to stop at red lights and pay attention while he is cycling, it might be the best $1,155 he ever spends.
xynix: I live in the burbs.. Not many cyclists out here and of those that are they're the tight clothes logo wearing kind. A special kind of douche..
thismomentinblackhistory: Cars should be equipped with sensors that slow their speed ~50% when a bicycle is near.
CruJones: The best part is that he apparently makes about12k a year.You're doing it wrong.
Metalupis: notmtwain: If it gets him to stop at red lights and pay attention while he is cycling, it might be the best $1,155 he ever spends.As someone who bikes for fun on the weekends, I agree with this soooooo much
lordargent: $1555 = about one-tenth of his annual income?So is annual income is about $15,550 ... in new york?Aren't hipsters supposed to have money, you know, to buy all of that ironic hipster swag?

jake_lex: xynix: I live in the burbs.. Not many cyclists out here and of those that are they're the tight clothes logo wearing kind. A special kind of douche..I hate cyclists who just ride around town in those skin tight shorts. This isn't the farking Tour de France, asshole, I don't wanna see your package.
oukewldave: I don't know if he could look any more "hipster-y" than he does in the picture. Maybe some visible stickers on his bike?
BumpInTheNight: Woohoo cars vs bikes thread! I'll just leave this link to a diesel truck sharing the road with some cyclists here./now that's how you produce the lulz
Erix: oukewldave: I don't know if he could look any more "hipster-y" than he does in the picture. Maybe some visible stickers on his bike?Really? Having the earbuds in makes him look a little douchey, but he's not wearing anything ironic, doesn't have skinny jeans, his head/facial hair is unkempt but not intentionally ridiculous.. I'm not really seeing it.Is flannel and a bike all it takes now?
cherryl taggart: I didn't realize how rare cyclists are in my neck of the woods, until one day when little voices from my car seats all piped up at once. "Mommy, Mommy, what's that?" "Mommy, look at those funny clothes." "Mommy, why are those guys riding those funny bikes with their butts in the air?" Before I could answer, my husband calmly replied, "They are practicing for their next game of 'kick my ass'."
