"A couple of times (when I remembered my lock but forgot my keys) I've propped my bike up so that a passing glance makes it seemed locked. Never left it that way for more than 10 minutes tho."

Maurice replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?

Maurice replied to Yasmeen's discussion Different Cities, Different Rules?
"In Pittsburgh, cars turn left as soon as the light turns green, even if they don't have a green arrow.   They also come to a complete stop at the end of highway on-ramps, but that doesn't affect cycling."

"The guy obviously is extremely connected, but the video contains evidence of at least 2 felonies: - falsely claiming to be a police officer, like Tom pointed out, and - aggravated battery for intentionally hitting a guy with his truck."
