Reckless bike riding is the problem, which should be ticketed. That's easily enforceable. However, getting ticketed at 3am for rolling slowly on the sidewalk in Harlem with no person in sight, just so I can quickly enter my apartment without the possibility of getting mugged could be overlooked with common sensibility. I had just got back on the train from riding out to Montauk from my front door in Harlem. Another successful day of biking was undermined by the feeling I had when trying to go to sleep because of a fairly silly citation.

The Idaho Stop does not require a cyclist to come to a full stop and put their foot down; it is a "rolling stop", which conserves momentum and energy and makes for much more efficient cycling. http://www.cyclelicio.us/2009/04/idaho-stop-law-for-cyclists.html Also, http://vimeo.com/4140910 is a great video, made to support proposed legislation in Portland to make the Idaho Stop legal there. We need to pursue similar changes to law here.
