Bike lanes are just another way to steal!

Punished for NOT riding in the bike lanes?

Anytime the government adds layers of complicated ways to come across as they’re “helping” people – it usually means the opposite.

Take the situation Casey Neistat had in NYC. He got a ticket for NOT riding in the bike lanes!

You’ll have to watch this hilarious video to see what it all means. Fantastic!

Up until a few years ago we didn’t even have bike lanes! Hoboken is trying to accommodate all its residents, so establishing bike lanes was a requirement. As far as ticketing is concerned, guess that is a traffic violation now. LOL. Guess we just have to “go with the flow” now. LOL! 😛

I got a ticket for driving my car on a bike lane, I told the cop a car was double parked and I had to use the bike lane to get around. LOL That is one funny ass video. I was thinking about making a video like that with my car but I figured I would get a ticket if I ran into the back of a double parked car LOL

Whatever. It’s just like the speed limit. Everyone (generally) knows what it is when they drive. But they ignore it anyway.

I get their point but even if the traffic is going 75 and you get pulled over for speeding – “sometimes “I have to” just doesn’t cut it. And these guys have been known to stretch the truth a bit so who’s to say if he was just weaving around a truck or in the fire lane when he got caught.

That said, I’m a regular user of those bike lanes and I completely understand and respect the point. The police should be ticketing the delivery trucks – but they already do (to a degree) and are certainly heavily taxed.

But if I break the traffic laws and get caught, I have only myself to blame.
