L.A. County Sherrif’s Ticket Paris Hilton for Using the Bike Lane in her SUV
Reality television star Paris Hilton was cited by L.A. County Sheriff’s for driving her black SUV into a bike lane. Apparently traffic was moving to slowly for the Hotel Heiress on Santa Monica Boulevard last night, so she decided to put her schedule ahead of the safety of any cyclist who was trying to use the lane. She was cited for "unsafe passing."
As you might expect, the story is already going viral on the Internet; but here’s the real question…when’s the last time you heard of the Sheriff’s ticketing someone for violating the bike lane? Also, does anyone want to take bets on whether or not any of news coverage of Hilton’s folly will mention the numerous complaints about safety involving the construction of that lane?
