    Montreal cyclist fined for warning others about police spot check - Montreal - CBC News

    I don't run reds, but I still love the spirit of this bikecommuter, who got a ticket, then realized he was early for work and stayed at the intersection to warn other cyclists of the cop's trap. $651 ticket for his trouble.

    TBH, with the attitude of cars around here, I would be more inclined to watch and cheer the cop not root for the driver...

    Hah that underpass is about 200 m from my office....

    None of us can figure out how he lost his bike...the underpass fills pretty slowly so we cant figure out why he didn't just step off and carry his bike out...

    I guess if he rode in fast and fell off that might have done it...

    Anyway it all worked out.

    LOL, rare because they're not really supposed to be here, but tolerated because they're not too harmful to environment here. I've seen a couple on my rides.

    The article is in German and the story is from Spain, but the vid shows it all: Cyclists save deer:
    https://www.stern.de/panorama/video/...e-8917824.html

    and this guy was basically saved by himself. The Article is in German, but the FB post is in english:
