Mockumentary: Bike Lanes -- New York City

In this clip, an amateur "mockumentary" (fake documentary) film maker in New York, Casey Neistat, decided to make a funny video about how the bike lanes in the city were constantly blocked by obstructions after Casey got a ticket for NOT riding his bike in a bike lane.

I think that perhaps the funniest part of all this to me is where Casey Neistat points out at the end that it's NOT EVEN ILLEGAL to ride a bike outside of a bike lane in New York City. I think this is a perfect example of a dumb police officer trying to fill a ticket quota instead of checking up on the laws of his or her jurisdiction. Seriously, with all of the rapes, murders, and robberies in the world, I would think that cops could find something more productive to do with their time than to persecute hapless bike riders.
