A reader writes, “can’t believe I haven’t seen more about this elsewhere… quite a crazy (and cautionary) tale…”

Wow! This story from A Girl on a Bicycle is amazing:

I was stopped [on a bike] at the intersection of 13th and Kenyon St. NW at a red light, waiting to turn left onto 13th St. Kenyon is a one-way street going west, and I was on the left side of the street, since I would be turning left. While waiting for the light I heard a car speed up Kenyon St. behind me…

The light turned green and I started to proceed. And then I felt *BUMP!!!!!* again, this time a bit harder…

So I stopped. Pulled out my police badge (yes, I’m a cop if you didn’t know before. No I really don’t want to talk about it, thanks) showed it to the driver and motioned him to stay right where he was.

Read the full crazy story here.

Ed. Note: This is my new favorite volume of props to the cops!
