Did I mis-hear? I thought the "You're in the bike lane" was directed at drivers traveling in the bus/taxi/bike restricted lane from a stationary observer on the sidewalk, not a cyclist passing stopped cars blocking the bike lane.

You heard right, and I got it wrong even though I heard the story four times.

There was also the question of whether or not the police should have released the cyclist an hour before, with the cyclist appearing to be drunk at the time.

Can cyclists ride drunk?

As it turns out, you">http://www.torontosun.com/news/torontoandgta/2009/09/04/10743401-sun.html">you can bike drunk in Ontario. It's still a bad idea, and if it were America, I'm sure there would be a lawsuit in the works.

We argue endlessly about behavior and fault. But problem is the system itself. There can never be peaceful coexistence between car and bike. The car cannot even coexist with itself. It must be eliminated from planet earth.


from the pictures his chain was off. It being a fixed gear bike suggests the rear triangle sustained damage. From the video linked above it looks to me he rode the hood for awhile. Minor?

Right, but he rode the hood after he jumped on the car right? The initial collision may have damaged his frame, but there's no indication he was hurt. Unhurt cyclist = minor in my opinion. You're definition may vary.
