Irvine, California – California’s police gone wild

Californian police seems to be generally hyper reactive. Camille tells us that she went on her bike for training with 13 other friends. They pedalled up a steep hill of which hilltop is a stop sign. The 14 friends slowly passed the stop sign with walking speed to prevent the bikers in the rear from having to stop and start several times on the steep hill. The junction was completely without any traffic. A police man in a hidden car pulled over the entire group and issued a ticket to everbody. Every single ticket contains a fine of – believe it or not – 487 $! The bikers jointly take the case to court. Not to deny their obvious fault, but to claim a lower fine or community service instead.
