The dean of a fancy private school on the Upper West Side was cited by the NYPD for cycling while a tote bag was hanging from her handlebars reports the New York Post, a tabloid now forced to acknowledge the ridiculousness of the anti-bike atmosphere it helped create. Claire Lecomte du Nouy assumed the officer was joking when he asked her to dismount, but then started writing out the ticket, even though he told her it would likely be dismissed: “Don’t worry, you can go to court. The judges always throw these out.” Which is really true in this case, since there’s no law against what she was doing.
