R-E-S-P-E-C-T, PPD TCB (Taking Care of Bicyclists)

Posted: July 20, 2011 in Criminal Activity, Police/Fire/Unions

Thank goodness SOMEONE in this city cares about education!  The police department is making a huge effort to educate all those crazy and dangerous people who ride bikes in Center City.  It seems that these cyclists just don’t have the sense that the average motorist does and, if you drive in Philly, you know just how smart and conscientious that demographic is.

As police Capt. Alan Clark states, “[Motorists] don’t need education. If they ran a red light, they know what they did.” That’s right, motorists are fully aware that they’re a danger to themselves and others, but cyclists need this message to be drummed into them by Philly’s finest.  Stu Bykofsky of the Daily News will tell you just how nuts it is to try and commute by bicycle, like those whacked out Dutch people in Amsterdam.  These are PEOPLE WHO WEAR WOODEN SHOES for godssake! Are we going to look to them as an example of anything?!?

Riding a bike after the age of 12 is just madness.  Normal adults drive cars!  Once we convince bicyclists, then maybe we can get all those weirdos off public transportation and into a nice safe SUV as well.   It’s really just a matter of respect…And, more importantly, I know I feel safer knowing the PPD is focused on this key urban safety issue.  I might get strangled in Center City, but a cyclist will now think twice before riding too close to me!
