Cyclist Gets Ticket, Proves Bike Lane is Unsafe

Subscribe to TheFW on

We’re not positive, but ticketing a cyclist should probably go under the NYPD’s list of “Things That Are A Waste of Time.”

In this hysterical video, which shows NYC cyclist and filmmaker Casey Neistat first getting a $50 ticket for not riding in the bike lane and then proving that the lane is not always the safest one to be in, is quickly becoming our favorite video. Maybe it’s because the guy has the gall to take all of those nasty falls, or perhaps it’s just because we love watching cops get owned on camera, but this one is definitely a win for us.

Having said that, he should probably have worn a helmet knowing he’d be taking those crashes, yes?
