Been ticketed while riding a bike? Join This Crowdsourcing Project

(Alex Goldmark, Transportation Nation) Have you been ticketed while riding your bike? Know someone who has, or even just seen someone getting a ticket on their bike? We want to hear about it.
Cyclists have to obey motor vehicle laws in New York City. There are more cyclists on the streets—just see this chart. Now, we'd like to map how many more violations are being issued.
We've reported on tickets for speeding, running red lights in Central Park, for not riding in the bike lane on Lafayette street, and riding on the sidewalk in Brooklyn, but we know there are other pockets of increased enforcement out there as well.
Mapping the Bike Tickets of 2011
We're looking to map where, and for what the recent increased enforcement of violations by cyclists. Please spread the word to all the cyclists you know.
