Cycling News Photographer Catches Drivers in the Act

Wisconsin’s Jeff Frings is an avid bike rider. He’s also a photographer for Milwaukee’s Fox 6, which may be why this report is among the most fair and balanced we’ve seen on cyclists’ right to the road.

Like many if not most cyclists, Frings has had his share of run-ins with space-hogging drivers. Unlike most, Frings’s bike is equipped with front- and rear-facing cameras. As you’ll see, this has given him an edge when making his case following a close call — his footage resulted in a ticket for one motorist — but it’s still not enough when law enforcement officials are ignorant of, or are unwilling to enforce, traffic laws.

    We don’t even have a 3-foot passing law here in L.A. for the police to be ignorant of.

  • The yelling spliced clips in the beginning are funny and familiar

  • And by “avid bike rider” who mean someone who goes for a ride when the snow ploughs are clearing the road….. yeah!

    still, i love his video evidence… it is good to document the dangers.
