This week I rode single file up to the SF Park Police Station with about 100 fellow bikers demonstrating how silly it is for cyclists to come to a complete stop at every stop sign. Channel 2 KTVU, one of the Bay Area’s local news stations, asked me what I thought of the cherry-picked enforcements and I pointed out the hypocrisy of holding cyclists to the letter of the law while letting cars get away with murder (at about 0.50 into the video).

The following day, Supervisor John Avalos announced plans to introduce a policy urging the SFPD to let people on bikes treat stop signs as yield signs, which would legitimize the safe, practical maneuver already practiced by the vast majority of people on bikes, which is legal in Idaho.
