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.

How about a vest that says "POLITE CYCLIST"
The T in polite made to look like a C from a distance or quick glance. Throw in some checkers etc
Would that be impersonating a police officer?
Maybe install two bells with different pitches a minor third apart, and ring them alternately - would that be considered impersonating a siren, or just a polite warning?

Which reminds me, that someone once researched the only time a crowd appears able to sing in tune together is at a basketball game, when someone puts a shot up and misses everything. The crowd's response of "Aaaaaiiiir baaaaaal" is almost always the notes D and F.
"two bells with different pitches a minor third apart, and ring them alternately - would that be considered impersonating a siren, or just a polite warning?"

I believe that is called a door bell
Just get one of these:

Personally, I think it would ruin the aesthetics of my bicycle and cars would not hear it anyway, so I am going to stick with shouting "nee nor nee nor nee nor" as I ride down the road.
Why stop there? Is this our new Wiggle? I think its cool such a site exists!

Maybe we should start a SC group for police polite wannabes?
Awesome!

This is my gun, this is my... erm... bike made by a gun manufacturer.

And there was me thinking it would be more fun riding down the Bourke Street cycleway in a knight style armour and lance... Guess I need to wake up and move into the C19/C20.
I've searched the site and can't find a donut holder. Maybe I could patent one...
I really like the logo and camo options.
Thinking which is the better bullet proof material, steel or carbon fibre?
(start the group, start the group...)
You need the folder:

"Strong as a tank"

"Easy to transport, you can take this bike anywhere"

Even on peak hour city rail?

"you can even jump with it! "

I wonder if that includes "sweet jumps"?

Can it help you build her a cake?
Have the vuvuzela laws made football safer? (If only...)
There used to be a motorcyclist who rode what looked like a police motorcycle which had "POLITE" in large letters across the front fairing. He was never cut up by car drivers.

Wonder where he went?
