To all LA cyclists: SMPD is going out of their way to target 'brakeless' fixies along Main St. My buddy just got a ticket and mentioned that a passerby said he watched Officer Rosenberg (on motorcycle) issue tickets to cyclists all morning.
Here's what to do:
- Gather yourself. Being an asshole doesn't help.
- Educate by highlighting your compliance with how "brakes" are defined according to CA Vehicle Code 21201 and demonstrate a skid stop.
- Pray the officer is not completely ignorant.
