PDN Video Pick: Bicyclist Fights City Hall with Moral Outrage (and Humor)
Tempers have been flaring for months over New York City’s bike lanes. Residents blame them for adding to traffic congestion; bicyclist claim motorists who flout the rules make the bike lanes unsafe. Against that backdrop, filmmaker (and bicyclist) Casey Neistat has posted a 3-minute video titled “bike lanes” to protest a fine he had to pay for straying outside a bike lane. His initial encounter with a police officer makes for a slow start, but if you stay with it, the rest of the video makes for quite an entertaining short.
