This evening, on the North side of the Burrard Bridge, in front of Bicycle Sports Pacific, there was a motorcycle cop. I thought he was sitting there waiting to pounce on cyclists who were not wearing helmets.

While I was waiting there at the intersection, a big black truck was causing a traffic back-up (lots of horns honking) -- he was in the left lane southbound, trying to turn left onto Pacific. Not Allowed.

The motorcycle cop waited for the driver of the truck to come to his senses and go over the bridge. But as the light changed he floored it and went left.

The cop sprang into action. Siren blaring, he shot out of his hiding place and went after the truck. I assume the truck got a ticket, or at least a nice stern talking-to.
