Our first European submission!  This is from Lille, in the north of France, and was submitted by Ludo, who counted: “seven vehicules of riot police near a huge parking where they can easily all parked. No emergency at all, all the policemen are watching for television on their phones waiting for the soccer world cup final to begin… There is a free bike station at the corner and it’s quite crowdy today !”

Tillary and Jay, Brooklyn.  July 16.  Submitted by a user who wishes to remain anonymous, but who did want to mention that the reason that these officers decided to endanger cyclists was to stop into the convenience store.

7th Ave and W. 10th, Manhattan.  July 12.  Submitted by Claire D., who tries to be optimistic: “There didn’t seem to be a lot going on here, but I’d love to think only a serious emergency would force cyclists like this one out into car traffic amid West 10th’s heavy, dangerous road work.”
