    “hey sarge, those bloody cyclists are gonna be out in force today, it’s that Ride to Work day thing”
    “they think the road rules don’t apply to them Danno”
    “why don’t we head out and wait on one of those paths where they will all ride past and see what we find?”
    “haha, yeah – safety check!”
    “it’ll be like shooting fish in a barrel”

      hahaha sounds like the bupa ride in adelaide a few years back where there was a cop pulling everyone over who didn’t have a front and rear light when it was 5min to dawn (was already well light) and there was a bunch of 100’s of cyclists. he was pulling more people over than he could control, what a ridiculous situation.

      Surely education would be a far more effective method for those cops than a fine. way to show they’re out serving and protecting the community.

        the police do some great work and I don’t like sledging them, but I feel that some of these things don’t help their cause (unlike individual cyclists, the actions of individual police can more fairly be judged as representative of broader police policy – although in this case I’m guessing it’s over-exuberance by low to middle ranking individual officers). they seem not to consider or care about the reaction to this sort of unnecessary approach

          have to agree, they do great work at times. It seems more like a few individuals who for whatever reason loose sight of what’s important and just have to stamp their authority when they’re really dealing with a trivial issue.

            I also share your sentiments. All of my police interactions (excluding highway patrol) have been very positive, even if I’ve been in the wrong. I am surprised when I read things like this, as generally VicPol come across as genuine, caring people.

          Glad I live in one of the 99% of countries that don’t have these type of granny laws. Leave it up to the individual if they want to wear a helmet or any other type of head covering or not bother at all.

    cops are tops, lol, what a joke.

    The student in question can thanks Bicycle Network for the fine. They’re big backers of helmet laws.

    Classic waxing job on Mattia Gavazzi’s eyebrows = marginal aero gains right there folks.

    USA Cycling didn’t learn from Team Sky’s zero tolerance policy, while a good idea in theory and a great PR or marketing move, it really strengthens omerta. For people who may have a past they get an option of lying or losing there job. How many of Team Sky’s coaches, riders etc have been outed by other people’s books, they chose employment over unemployment. Not that I have a better solution, but it is unfair if Coach 1 loses his job because he lied and then was mentioned in a biography, when Coach 2 also lied but nobody mentioned him in a book or interview.
    Maybe a case by case process where telling the truth doesn’t necessarily end in a negative outcome and lying leads to profit.
