    Video: harassing at the wrong cyclist

    I found a link to this on another site- poor bonehead with a stuck horn just didn`t notice the word P-O-L-I-C-E on the back of the cyclist who was hogging up too much lane space.

    Interesting video. I wonder if that is the law on every state or just the one where the video was shot.

    The laws regulating cyclists vary wildly from state to state and even municipalitiies , best to be aware of local regulations .

    That's pretty rich...but since as the saying goes, "there's never a cop around when you need one", I have always wanted my own blue lights & siren to surprise offenders with. Too bad it's illegal.

    Every state is different. In VT they suggest cars pass with 4' to spare in the DMV manual, but it's not the law. You are supposed to ride as far to the right as is safe, which is a judgment call. You can ride 2 across if you don't interfere with traffic unreasonably (or similar wording). You can even carry a package as long as you don't have both hands off the handlebar!!! (I wonder what prompted that law??)

    Amazing. I've seen people honk at squad cars before, too. It's unfathomable as to what's going through their head when they do that. Probably very little, I would imagine.
