PoliceLights Evan Westrate, a neighbor of mine, just forwarded this somewhat unusual report –

“I saw a Newton police cruiser pull over a bicyclist yesterday!  I was driving behind the officer on Cabot St. in Newtonville, about to turn left onto Walnut St. by Newton North.  The light turned green for us, and one car in front of the cruiser turned onto Walnut.  As the police cruiser was turning left, a cyclist on Walnut St. sped right through the red light in front of him.  On came his lights and he pulled her over right on the spot!  I could see the incredulous look on her face as I passed by.  I don’t know how the laws apply in that situation, or whether she was issued a ticket or not.  It’s just something you don’t see every day!”
