In civilized cities, who recognize the true culprits of danger, (motorists) as seen here in Copenhagen:

The bike cops ticket the cars.
Therefore the city has turned it’s sights on law breaking cyclists in the name of “safety.”

Here the cops are ticketing cyclists for such heinous infractions like “not riding in the bike lane.”
Meanwhile the motorists are continuing to mow us down and commit felonies like fleeing the scene of the crime (hit and run)
Like we witnessed in Time’s Square last week.
and now in Williamsburg, Brooklyn:

My friend Serena was riding her bike in Williamsburg and was struck at the intersection of South4th and Wythe around 2:26 pm (Friday February 4th, 2011). She was struck by a motorist who, instead of stopping to see if she was okay, fled the scene and left her for dead. We were informed at around 8PM of her condition.
She currently has a punctured lung, broken pelvis, among several other severe injuries and is in the ICU at Bellevue Hospital. She is currently unconscious under heavy sedation.
