[Cyclelicious] New comment on SFPD bicycle training video.

Michael has left a new comment on your post "SFPD bicycle training video":

A few criticisms:

1. San Francisco Police Officers - not that good at acting.

2. "I'll catch up to the motorist, you catch up to the guy on the bicycle." simply means "I'm going to stop up here, you go ALL THE WAY down the street to get that guy". He was greedy by taking the easy catch.

3. When the police officer catches up to the guy down the street, if you look further down the street, there is a car parked facing the wrong direction. I know in many cities that is an offense that can be ticketed.

4. "Bet you coffee" is illegal gambling. The police are not setting a good example.

5. At 6:16 remaining, there is obviously a car with it's hazards on in the bike lane.

6. At 4:56 remaining, you can clearly see the same car parked illegally in the street.

7. The cyclist who was intimidated should have kept what was thrown at him. A littering fine would add insult to injury.

8. The girl hit that hit the car is wearing a microphone on her sweatshirt. Seems sketchy, maybe she's working undercover for the SFPD in some type of insurance fraud scheme.

9. When the group exclaims "Bikes Belong In Traffic, Share The Road", they are obviously taking up the entire road. This can create an unsafe environment for all and is probably illegal.

In all seriousness, it's a great training video for SFPD.
