How many bicycle cops does it take to pull over a car on Mission Street?

Answer: 6! One to write the ticket and the other five to cork it in. It’s like a reverse Critical Mass that gives you tickets instead of running red lights.

Has anyone ever been pulled over by a bicycle cop? Unfortunately I missed the chase scene so the mechanics are murky at best – do they always work in packs?

    The Thick Blue Line between the citizens and chaos. I saw four of them talking to a homeless guy at Sunday Streets. Real dangerous situation; I hope they called for backup.

    They’re pack animals.

  4. Lucky! I only had two pull me over. And I have to say, they really wield the element of surprise. I didn’t even have any time to attempt to flee like I usually do.

    This unit doesn’t sport mustaches; even female motorcycle cops have one.

    Some years back when they first started running them on Mission St a bicycle cop came up behind a car & turned its flashing lights on; the car just accelerated away.

    Next time the cop did that he pulled around the car with his flashing lights and slowed until he had the car stopped.

    Whatever you think about cops, it’s way cooler to see them on bikes than hulking around on SUVs like in some other cities.

    Really, can’t you see there is a supervisor in the pack plus the normal backup and on top of it, they were likely headed to coffee.

    In Minneapolis, I once saw a woman pulled over by a Segway cop. Yes, we have a heavy Segway cop presence in Minneapolis.

    Maybe they were trainees?

    I was watching this happen. A guy left his car double-parked in the middle of Mission street and went into a building. By the time he came out a swarm of cops had gathered around the car. He offered to “just drive off” but they wanted to Do Procedure.

      Nice! Definitely need more of this! I hate the double-parking fucktards.
