Tangentially related.

This morning while walking by the Naval Memorial I observed a bicycle mounted police officer (not MPD, perhaps FBI?) stop a cyclist who was riding in the right hand lane (westbound).

I was half-a-block away but the officer appeared to direct the cyclist to the center lane cycle track. The cyclist made a motion by pointing with his arm that he intended to make a right turn soon.

Anyway the cyclist crossed 3 lanes of PA Ave to take the cycle track as dictated by the officer. After a moment the officer turned around and followed the cyclist. Maybe the officer was continuing to target the cyclist??

The irony of this is that riding in the right hand lane of PA is legal. When the officer stopped the cyclist he had been riding on the sidewalk - illegal.
