Okay, let me just say that I sympathies with the NYPD for the most part. They are charged with keeping law and order in a city of eight Million people, but it’s got to be a slow day in crime when they pull a stunt like this.
On a Tuesday morning when Central Park was closed to cars and mostly used for people exercising the NYPD set up a speed trap to ticked bicyclists for going over 15 miles an hour. After they finished up and left the park was open to cars that were going faster then 15 miles an hour. Why not ticket them? According to the article the police were not to happy about it either so you have to give that to them, but someone higher up must have a grudge against cyclists to be ticketing them in one of the places people want them to be able to ride? If not ride in a park then where? People don’t want them on the streets? Maybe bikes should be removed from the city altogether.
