when I ride my bicycle, I do my best not to hold up motorized vehicles. I also do what I can to insure my safety. I usually do not ride in high traffic time periods, but then again I do not commute on a bicycle, I do it for exercise. I ride daily at lunch (except Fridays when I go to KPOP) and on weekends I ride at 6:30 to 8 in the morning.

I was in League city on my bicycle once and came up on a traffic light. There was construction on this road and was barreled off to one lane. I had three or four cars come up behind me so I decide to do the considerate thing and blow the light and get out of the way. When the intersection was clear I rode across and into the blocked off lane and waited for the traffic to pass. It wasn't long after the traffic passed this cop pulls me over and gives a ticket for running the light. Ever since then I said Fk it and started taking the whole lane so cars have to change lanes to go around, if you ride all the way to the right off the lane the drivers will blow by not even giving you a foot. It makes me laugh when these idiots tell me to get on the side walk. You try riding on a side walks made for pedestrians at 20-25 mph. Then I go ride the bayou trails and get yelled at for almost running over the walkers and joggers.

Lol. I had to go around a lot of cars today on 290 driving in the fast lane with bicycles on racks going very very slow.
In reference to your post, you did the right thing. Some cops just hate two wheels, and some love them.

Sometimes all it takes to off a motorist is to just be on a bicycle - and nothing else.

To answer all the questions about why the vegans couldn't stop him, well without substantial protein in their diet they just don't have the brawn to stop a true red meat eating 74 year old AMERICAN!
My wife tried being a vegan and all she got was an allergy to soy. Go team AMERICA.
