#2 If there are bike lanes available you should make use of them. I'm not quite sure if you can get a ticket for not using them, though.

Anyway, good way to get the attention he wants, his video should go viral. ;)

Remember, always ride the bike on lane to avoid tickets; specially when you see a police car parked on the lane. >:)

Ancient Vid !! Anyway, like it is here in Norway we have thousends of kamikaze cyclists who think they are invincible in traffick. Its really annoying, they cause a lot of unnessesery problems for car-drivers. They should have their own bike lane, away from the road in every city. To bad politicians dont prioritize this enough ! :(|)

I ride a lot and some of these bikers are real a-holes. He has a good point, but I really hate their pretentious thinking of I'm doing the world/planet a favor so I'm special 0:20 .

#8 he is doing the world a favor. Every person who gets on a bike is relieving stress on the public transportation system and more importantly on the roads itself. Every car that's not on the road saves on traffic jams and pollution.
More people should do so.

Too bad he didn't film before he got ticketed. Now we will never know the circumstance behind his ticket. There is nothing stopping him from dismounting his bike and walking across the blockade. You are a biker; getting hit by a car will not be pleasant. Dismounting and walking takes seconds, but it may save your life. I still think blocking the lanes are stupid, but not biking inside the lanes is even more stupid.

The biker made a good point, but why on Earth doesn't he wear a helmet? Seriously, I think riding without a helmet in my 200 000 people hometown is suicidal. It's a cheap life insurance.

This is another law made by local government (this law is only for New York, or potentially just for the New York City region, it doesn't apply to all of the US or for example In Chicago where Bikers are not "restricted" to a bike lane).
The local lawmakers try to solve a problem of bikers going in and out of traffic and just like typical government, screw it all up. Another example of government getting involved when they should not be.

Kind of a stupid point on the biker's side, though. Car drivers have to constantly negotiate their way around obstructions in the city as well. The guy is just militant and inflexible and thinks he's better than the other road users who actually have to obey the rules.

It should be an OPTION. Not wearing a helmet should be the ticket taker!

#17 - In the Netherlands, where millions of people ride bikes, they don't seem to feel helmets are necessary. I think mandatory bicycle helmets are going a little too far. It's the slippery slope to banning any sort of risky behaviour. Nobody wants to live in a world that is that boring.

When bicyclists pay registration and fees to ride on the road like all other vehicles then they will have the right to complain.
We all have to pay attention.
Would he have ridden into another bicyclist if they were stopped or in his way.
All of this was set up for the camera.
He is just a whiner, who never actually described in full his original infraction which was probably riding like an idiot to begin with.

Spoken like a true commie.I think most of the free world would disagree with you.
Currently, over 80% of the world's countries use capitalism, a free-market based economy. Its wide-spread use makes capitalism the most dominant form of economic system operating today. Names of capitalist countries include the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United Kingdom. In addition, all members of the European Union which includes Ireland,Portugal, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany,Italy, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Malta, Cyprus, Austria, The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Greece. Additional countries include Mexico, Australia, India, Egypt, Tunisia, Indonesia, New Zealand, South Africa, Switzerland, Botswana, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru and Turkey among others.
