Cops parked in bike lanes – Boing Boing

The Cops in Bike Lanes tumblr is just what you’d expect: photos from around America of police cars illegally stopped in bike lanes, a practice that forces cyclists to abruptly and dangerously enter the stream of automotive traffic.

Hey, why not?  Everybody else blocks those lanes, too.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fantasized about having an RPG in hand as I tool through town hereabouts….

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Something nice and scratchy works. Car keys, if you don’t have anything better at hand.

    You can turn up their windshield wipers, or break them off.

    You can put a sticker on the windshield, right in front of the driver’s face, which says, “Nice parking, asshole”.

    I will deny having done any or all of these. If subpoenaed, I’ll take the fifth.

    • While on the subject of denials, I also deny having thrown a mug of coffee in the face of a driver who did a right-on-red-without-stopping without noticing me walking in the pedestrian crosswalk. I deny having punched out the side window of a car which nearly clipped me not once but twice in a parking lot. (I’ll admit to having been surprised at the window actually shattering. Or I would if I’d punched it, which I deny.) I deny having thrown a shovelful of poop at a police car which went through a red light when I was walking my rottweiler one night, and nailing its rear window. I deny picking up cigarette butts and other litter which people throw out of their cars and throwing it back in. And finally, I deny swinging a chain and padlock and causing thousands of dollars of damage to a car which almost hit me and whose driver pulled over to threaten me with death when I called him an asshole.

    • My favorite is a small rock wedged into the tire valves, causing a slow leak. No real property damage, but a real nuisance when done to all four tires. Another good one is a potato shoved into the exhaust pipe.

    • I admit to not suffering fools gladly, and to not suffering bullies at all, and to having no tolerance whatsoever for people who endanger my life. Everything else I deny. Pics or it didn’t happen.
