50$ per wheelie…

Shane got stopped downtown Baltimore, apparently it’s illegal to wheelie. His citation says ‘Tricks/Fancy riding.’ Hats off to you Shane…frame that sucker for all to see!

    Dudes, It would appear that Shane was over-fined…

    According to the Baltimore City Code, ARTICLE 31. TRANSIT AND TRAFFIC, SUBTITLE 18, states that the maximum fine for a single offense is $10… $50 is absurd and wrong. Fight it.

    @Tommy, it says $50.00 on the ticket right?

    wait, so how and where exactly did this happen? he was just riding, did one wheelie and the cop stopped him? i'd like to know how careful i need to be in the future while riding around the city. also, city cops definitely have better things to do, and the ticket combined with the apparent overcharge makes it look like this is just more of the city shaking down its residents for revenue…

    shane said he did about 1.5 crank wheelie and dude just pulled over and jumped out of his car. he showed shane a handbook of like 4 pages and wouldnt give him one. ticket says 50$ and fancy riding on one wheel. it was near downtown so who knows. i doubt superiors were like "crack down on bikes" it was prob that cop was bored and or anal doing some reading….

    Was this cop Hispanic or Italian looking? just curious.

    If so, he has been ticketing messengers for riding on the sidewalk instead of dismounting in the middle of the street.

    Fight the ticket, he will not show.
