New York Police Stop Dutch Cyclist For Wearing ‘Disturbing’ Outfit

by | 14th, June 2011

IN New York, Dutch tourist Jasmijn Rijcken, 31, is riding her bicycle. The police pull her over. Says she:
“He said it’s very disturbing, and it’s distracting the cars and it’s dangerous. I thought he was joking around but he got angry and asked me for ID. I didn’t even think for one second that my outfit could be harmful or disturbing.”
Hands up who is distracted by the presence of the uniformed police and their wailing cars when on the road? Yep, all of you. And what about the people who fancy the bicycle – can they be leglislated for? (It could have been worse.)
And Jasmijn was in New York – the city where you ride the Subway in your knickers
