From the CHP Dispatch log last night comes a report of a white male cyclist with blond hair riding his bike in the slow lane of the I-405 freeway near Wilshire Boulevard. Here’s how the dispatches go:
12:39PM WHITE MALE W/ BLONDE HAIR RIDING A BIKE IN SLOW LN W/ TRAFFIC 12:39PM RIDING BIKE WITH FLOW OF TRAFFIC ON RIGHT SIDE 12:41PM TOW TRUCK DRIVER HAS CYCLIST DOWN ON THE GROUND WITH HIS KNEE ON HIS BACK
Sure, you’re not supposed to ride your bike on the freeway in the middle of Los Angeles, but was the physical takedown by the tow truck driver really necessary?
Cyclists can be so violent!
