From Raw Story and New York Magazine, Casey Niestat, a Manhattan cyclist, proves that a law requiring cyclists to only ride in the bike lane is ridiculous.
Here in San Francisco, it's also not easy; double-parked cars, merging lanes at large busy intersections, and other human, vehicle and construction sites make it sometimes impossible to stay in the bike lane. Fortunately, SFers are not (yet) required to ride only in bike lanes.
Sheesh. This is the grief cyclists get for nearly eliminating their carbon footprint; a kick in the face from the law.
Addendum: Oh, and now cops are (allegedly) ticketing NYC cyclists for wearing skirts!
