Should be considered a very embarrasing fact, if it were not the fact I was riding my Honda 70 Mini Trail up the hill from Patullo Bridge. I saw him at the light at 128th and KG, he pulled over at the gas station and waited for me to go at the green light. He followed 3 cars back while I travelled up the hill about 25mph, and as I noticed I was holding up cars in the slow lane, I moved to the edge of the lane and waved for cars to pass me,,no problem. He lit up his lights and sirens as I turned left on the green arrow at 108th, pulled over right away.
Patrolman "so you were going pretty slow up that hill".
me " Yes sir,,,what's the minimum speed on Surrey streets?
Patrolman " You know these things are pretty dangerous. That truck, you let him pass you, you were on the shoulder".
Me "Yes, that's why I wear this hi-vis jacket,,I pull over for common corteousy". Patrolman " that plate is not registered to a Honda, what is that plate?
Me "Yes, if you look at the ICBC manifest list, you see that I can use this plate on any of those".
Patrolman "License and insurance please"
Me, " you've got the insurance already"
10 minutes, he gives me everything back. He says " We're having a real bad problem with guys putting engines in the bicycles zooming around. I hate those things" I say, " I hate those things too, as well as those bloody electric scooters"
" You can go, have a good day".
Very strange pull over. Normally, I get the class 6 check, and away you go. This young kid was clearly thinking he had a reall good confiscation on a Sunday morning. Never really asked any of my questions, weird. Any body know the minimum speed in urban areas?
