Riding in a bike lane can be like finding your way through an obstacle course. So when East Village filmmaker Casey Neistat got a $50 ticket for “riding outside of a bike lane,” he made a video in protest.
Performing all his own stunts, he tried to navigate bike lanes in Manhattan, purposely crashing into everything that obstructed his path, from parked taxi cabs to safety cones. Yet, as entertaining as it is to watch him go flying, Neistat gets his point across. “Ticket the people blocking lanes, not bikes,” he says in his video, adding, “and give me my $50 back.”
Though Neistat may be out some cash, his video has gotten over 1,000,000 views on YouTube. Watch his protest antics below.
