Bike Lanes By Casey Neistat

Bike Lanes By Casey Neistat

image/video source

In 2011 Neistat made a video critical of the New York City Police Department's ticketing of cyclists for riding outside of the marked bike lanes. In the video Neistat films an encounter with an officer wherein he receives a $50 summons for not riding within the marked lanes. Neistat then proceeds to comically ride his bike in the lane crashing into various obstructions to highlight his argument that the lanes are not always the safest place for cyclists to ride. - [filed under: misc]
