Police Give Ticket for Signaling, Then Not Turning
It's probably one of the least heard of tickets, especially given to a bicyclist. But a ticket for signaling and then not turning was apparently handed out to one Critical Mass rider in Santa Monica on Friday night. Fellow rider to the cyclist and a photographer Alex Thompson said it was "biased enforcement."
Santa Monica Critical Mass and Santa Monica Police have a history of meeting up every first Friday of the month. Hundreds of cyclist show up with a few to fifteen officers trailing behind. In August, the department spent over $3,000 for sixteen officers to monitor the ride.
