Cop -vs- Bicyclists, who will GD side with?

NEW YORK CITY — A scooter-driving NYPD veteran burned through his summons book during the past three years, handing out a record number of tickets to rule-breaking bicyclists pedaling around the Upper West Side.

Officer Joshua Vincek issued 1,249 tickets to bicyclists between Jan. 1, 2012, and Feb. 26, 2015 — far more than anyone else in the police department, according to records obtained by DNAinfo New York.

The NYPD did not respond to requests for comment on Vincek’s singular effort.

But Joseph Bolanos, the president of the West 76th Street Park Block Association, spoke glowingly of the 11-year veteran who works in the Upper West Side’s 20th Precinct.

Bolanos, who knows Vincek from his outreach in the neighborhood, credited the officer with helping to curb the bad behavior of restaurant delivery bicyclists and recreational bikers bucking traffic laws along Columbus Avenue.

I don't live in NY, but I'm guessing that the bicyclists are a major PITA.

I have no problem with cyclists on the road as long as they obey traffic laws.  Many do not.

Cyclists are a major PITA in a big city.


Surprised the cop couldn't write more.

You know exactly who GD is going to side with. Most here would side with Adolph Hitler over a guy riding a bike down the road.

Good for him, it's a start.

its just too bad he didn't shoot a few

Well... yeah.... fuck bicyclists. Mostly those who ride down small, twisty, 2 lane 2 way country roads at a pace slightly faster than a brisk walk.

Bullshit.  Bicyclists who follow the rules of the road are gtg, they are also exceedingly rare.

It's not just in the US.  In Japan, pedestrians and bicyclists have absolute right of way on the road, if you hit one you are fucked.  This year they are finally making them start following the same rules of the road as motor vehicles, or get fines.

Meh. Critical mass deserves every beat down they get.

Cop probably got sick of their shit after the 87,000th hipster fag shouted "fuck you pig" as they rode by.

First night in Mid-Town, December '94, I stood on a corner during rush hour.

Cyclists, roller bladers cutting through traffic in total anarchy. Watched a cab make a legal right turn on green, have to stop because of traffic, cutting off a cyclist running up from the right. Guy jumped off his bike, screamed "fucker!", kicked in the rear fender of the cab, then took off through the now red light.

In the week we were there, saw stuff like that all the time.

Officer Vincek might even be a slacker.

Hitler built the autobahn and helped high speed traffic, so he was better than bicyclists (at least in that regard).

I saw FAR more lawbreaking in my time in NYC by bicyclists than all the cabbies or patch-wearing bikers combined.

They don't have a plate on their ass, they KNOW it, and yell at YOU the pedestrian when you are on the sidewalk to get out of "their" way!
