LAPD electric bikesOkay – this should not be allowed to stand. News reports coming in that the Los Angeles Police Department is testing the use of electric bikes for their officers. Makes sense – when you need that extra speed boost to catch those runners the electric bike is just what you need. What makes us crazy is why LA – and why not San Francisco?

The bikes were donated to the LAPD for testing. We’ll keep an eye on this story and let you know when SFPD gets some hands on these new crime fighting tools. With our Resetty new police chief, we doubt this will take long.
