    Great...

    Now all of the car drivers are going to go around groping women and hide behind the statement that "they'll start abiding by assault laws when the bicyclists do first".

    Riding on sidewalk also?

    Were the pedestrians who were assaulted walking on the street or the sidewalk, with the attackers riding on the sidewalk?

    I'm guessing that the height of the attacker is hard to state based on the bicycle size which is probably far too small for its rider, as is popular in the hood.

    Now, if police enforced the ban on sidewalk riding in commercial areas, pedestrians would be less at risk from more than just indecent assaults.

    So tiresome

    He probably saw it while driving through the hood. Now do me a favor and go get that jerky knee of yours checked.

    Um, that's not a 'hood thing', that's a choose your style of bike thing. Have you ever SEEN BMX riders? (TRY HERE) And it isn't relegated to 'the hood'.

    Bicycles on or off the sidewalk won't help, pedestrians on sidewalks can still be reached from the street.

    At least as far as criminal style goes. He needs to get tips from Jeremey Meeks

    Jerks on bikes - Medford edition

    I was chatting with the lady who runs Lion Liquors in West Medford on Route 60. She told me one day she was walking from her car to the store with a Dunkin cup in her hand. A guy on a bike rode by and snatched her cup right out of her hand - didn't look back or say anything either.
