So Joseph Gentry [letter May 1] thinks it is "just too funny" to be given his "first ticket ever." He won't think it's funny when he pays a $370 fine.
Apparently he has no drivers license or he would know bicyclists must obey the laws as well, and that a red-light is a red-light and means stop.
Since he is just a red-light runner-in-training, maybe the court will be lenient. Let's hope not. He needs an education.
Even though the officer wasted his time lecturing Mr. Gentry, hooray for the California Highway Patrol -- go get 'em!
