More good stuff from the inbox. This time from Johnny Walker:
The bike registration law is repealed!! According to the most recent Ride On.
Finally, three years after a report by the Office of Police complaints entitled “Pretextual Stops of Bicyclists” pointed out the problems of “bicycle harassment” by police, the awful law that REQUIRED bike riders to have a registration number scratched into their bike or have it impounded has entered the annals of misbegotten history. Apparently DC Councilmember Phil Mendelson is largely responsible, he has earned our undying love.
