A reader mentioned the problem of restaurants using the bike/bus lane for valet parking. This is a big problem, because if the bike/bus only lane were enforced (hypothetically speaking, of course) who gets the ticket? Would the driver of the car get the ticket? If the restaurants are guilty, what could police do to stop this practice? Ask them nicely to stop doing it?
I think that these cops were keeping an eye on the guy who was selling "STOP BITCHING AND START A REVOLUTION" t-shirts. Gotta have your priorities, I suppose!
