Cycling this morning, I came across five cops on mountain bikes taking up a whole lane of South Dowling St, then turning into Moore Park Road. Strangely enough, every motorist gave them space, no one intimidated then, tried to overtake them, gave them the finger. In short, because they were cops, they were given respect on the road. Imagine if five ordinary cyclists did the same thing... Mind you, I think it's great that cops are riding bikes.
