Chuck Schumer, Scofflaw Cyclist

April 27, 2011

From the New York Times, 10/3/2004.

Despite his enthusiasm for cycling, Mr. Schumer has not necessarily mastered all the rules. He tends to follow his gut, not traffic patterns. As we crossed Pitkin Avenue, he drifted in front of an ice truck, eliciting a honk. The driver recognized Mr. Schumer despite the helmet.

”I’d expect that from a kid, not a senator,” the driver shouted.
