I wouldn't be caught dead on a bicycle with a radar detector.

Years ago, I used to ride a full Campagnolo Super Record equipped Columbus SL double butted Gios Torino and had been pulled over at least a dozen times for exceeding the speed limit. (Usually downhill on Crenshaw Blvd. in Palos Verdes, CA.) The bike was faster than me.

I was never issued a speeding ticket because I NEVER RODE A BICYCLE CARRYING MY DRIVER'S LICENSE OR ANY OTHER I.D.

You don't need a driver's license or any I.D. to ride a bicycle in the United States and few LEOs will bother with the extra work of ID'ing somebody without identification.

The ability to speak an Eastern European language and no I.D. is even better.

Scofflaw? Hardly! I was simply reducing the workload for California LEOs. Instead of writing me tickets, they issued verbal warnings and had more time to look for and arrest thieves, murderers, and wife-beaters. I was doing a public service.

Besides, cops compare tickets and anybody who cites a bicyclist is the laughing stock of the squad room. Think of all the money I saved on police therapists and time off for stress because little LEO's ego was bruised by his fellow cops!

What have you done for the benefit of your local community and local cops?

For the record, I moved from California years ago.

I think it's a great idea for: running stop signs, running lights, riding on the sidewalk, riding at night without lights or reflectors, riding in crosswalks, riding on the wrong side of the street, incorrect lane usage, riding the wrong way on a one-way street.

For speeding? Not so much. Should get an award for exemplary effort.
