Ok, had to get this off my chest and I am sure most everyone here goes through similar almost weekly if not daily. Riding to work this morning I was stopped at an intersection waiting for the light to turn green. This is a four lane divided that either you turn right or left onto a six lane divided so there is allot to watch out for. Light turns green, I look to the left and then to the right to be sure everyone was stopping, just like I'm sure we all do. Well to the right low and behold doesn't a pick up come wheelin out through the red light into the intersection and to be sure the proper attention was drawn to his goof he comes to almost a complete stop when he notices either the nice shiney Sporty coming from his left or the nice police car stopped at the red light he was running. Needless to say I quickly adjust my speed and begin to laugh inside as I look to the right to be sure I stay out of the way of the police car I am sure will be coming to talk to the man in the pick up. Well here is what happened, said pick up speeds up again and keeps going, Sporty slows enough not to get creamed and rider makes eye contact with police dude in police car, police dude shakes his head (as in tisk tisk) and does nothing, at this point Sporty continues on and wonders if Police dude would have called for an ambulance if the truck and Sporty met!
