In light of the citation I received Friday evening in Larchmont Village I decided to show you what a flagrant lawbreaker I am on a daily basis by reviewing and cataloging every single one of the citeable offenses I committed on my 14.5-mile commute to work this fine Monday morning.

And while the haters will see the list as pure reason to pimp and perpetuate their position that cyclists think they’re above the law, it should be needless to say that the violations detailed below were done only when it was absolutely safe and entirely without impact to my fellow commuters. And what it shows me is I should not be at all surprised when the Officer Bookers of the law catch up with me every 36,000 infractions I make every year… give or take a few hundred either way:
