Justin Bieber nailed by cops for speeding

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … speed was a factor, but Justin was cited for unsafe passing on the right. JB was also given an equipment violation for window tint.

Justin Bieber’s passion for fast cars got the best of him Saturday night, when he got stopped by a Beverly Hills cop … and plenty of reinforcements.

Witnesses tell TMZ, Justin was going well over the 25 MPH speed limit in his new Ferrari when he was spotted on a residential street in Bev Hills.

After the stop, 3 other squad cars rolled up.  It’s unclear why.  We’re told Justin got a speeding ticket and went on his way.

He did not ask the cops, “What do you mean?”  They were clear.

Little known, sometimes amusing traffic laws

Judge Tim Dickerson, Sierra Vista Herald

It may be informative, perhaps even surprising or amusing, to review some new, little known, or often ignored traffic laws.

In the category of little known laws, the driver of a vehicle exiting from an alley or private driveway, such as from a business along Fry Boulevard or a driveway in a residential area, must stop the vehicle immediately before driving onto the sidewalk or sidewalk area. The driver must also yield the right of way to pedestrians and approaching vehicles.

It is no longer a new law, but if a driver approaches a stationary vehicle which is displaying alternately flashing lights or warning lights, on a roadway with at least two lanes proceeding in the same direction as the approaching vehicle, the driver must change lanes away from the stationary vehicle if it is safe to do so. If the driver cannot safely change lanes, he or she must proceed with caution and reduce their speed, while maintaining a safe speed for road conditions.

Let Bikes Yield at Stop Signs

Sup. Breed Backs Idaho’s Common-Sense Law: Let Bikes Yield at Stop Signs

Aaron Bialick – Streetsblog SF

Supervisor London Breed has come out as the first known elected official in San Francisco to publicly support a sensible change to California traffic law: allowing people on bikes to treat stop signs as yield signs.

Breed voiced her position today in today’s deftly-crafted article by SF Examiner reporter Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez on changing the stop sign law:

“I think that’s how it should be,” she said, when asked if she supported San Francisco introducing Idaho-style rolling stops. “A bicycle is not a car, and they should be handled differently.”

Of rolling stops, she said, “On my bicycle, that’s what I do.”

“She’s speaking common sense,” said Dave Snyder, executive director of the California Bicycle Coalition, and former head of the SF Bicycle Coalition.
