I was riding to work today heading south on Beacon near the VA hospital when I think I saw a police officer pull over a rider for not wearing a helmet. As I rode by, I asked the rider if he was okay (thinking maybe he had gotten hit), and he just looked mad. Has anyone else heard reports of this today?
And I just heard from another cyclist that they got a 103 ticket for no helmet.
Just like the periodic stop-sign crackdowns on Mercer Island, sounds like the po po are looking for helmet scofflaws.
Anyone else seen cyclist getting tickets or got one themselves?
