Portland police bicycle traffic enforcment video

As reported on Bike Portland, the Portland police have just released a new internal training video to be used to refresh police knowledge of the traffic code and to give them guidance on how to apply the code. The basic message is that officers should apply common sense to enforcement of the code; not necessarily by the letter of the law by whether the offender was acting in a dangerous manner with intent to break the law. A cyclist slowly cruising through a stop sign while looking in all directions should be treated much differently than one dangerously blowing the sign at speed.

Excellent. Please forward to the Loudon county Sheriff :-).
