So I commute to a different town for work via bmx and train, and I was riding to work, and some police officers pulled me over, told me that as I have no brakes that I can't ride that "kiddies bike" and I can only ride it in "play parks" and that if he sees me riding it again he will take me to court and also confiscate and destroy my bike.

I got banned from riding my bmx in a whole town!

it's stupid, now I have to skate in and that's more dangerous... Well for me anyway, I can barely skate.

That is stupid asf. If you can fit a brake to your bmx then get a gyro or normal cable. I think they don't cost much.

Stop suggesting he puts on brakes thats stupid don't listen to the pigs ride your bike and ignore them, and if you do talk to them tell them to do there job and go bust a meth lab or something thats actually a threat to the community

I'm from England and the laws state you have to have a break... But apparently no one has actually been taken to court for it.

Fuck it I guess I'm gonna be the first one to be taken to court haha, and @oneguyilluminatieye I'm 18 so they can touch me and chill out bro no need to call me a pussy haha

The cops won't touch you, they'll shoot you several times because they feared for their lives since you're brakeless and clearly a huge threat.

Oh wait, you live in England, not the US, never mind.








Just tell them you have a coaster brake and if they ask what that is, just ride towards them and jam your foot in your tire real fast. Could work if they're dumb enough to not know any better.

Most states legally require brakes, some are more likely to enforce that law. I'd honestly bet a lot of countries do, purely for safety reasons.

Illuminati guy, just stop. You aren't impressing anyone with your "I disregard laws" crap. Telling them to "do their job" only makes them more likely to actually bust you, especially in future encounters.

Agreed.

Your attitude has a lot to do with how a cop will act toward you. Whether we bmx riders like it or not, 90% of the time when we go ride street, we're breaking the law by trespassing. Telling a cop to fuck off and go do his job is contradictory, because that IS their job.



I remember one time my 2 friends & I got stopped by a cop, and myself & 1 friend got off with a warning, but the other guy I was with got a fine because he kept telling them to go do something worthwhile and kept giving them an attitude the whole time saying this is bullshit.

I'm so sorry guys, I have no idea that such law exist.

If I'm in your place, I'll simply put on brakes.

Again, I stand corrected. Sorry guys

Well i do think it's stupid that such a law exists but i can understand why considering if they're going through vehicle traffic... you know, safety and what not. But I can't really say much about Great Britain laws seeing that i do not live there, but for here, i don't get stopped when traveling on mine and i am also on the sidewalk. There is a law in the state i reside in to have breaks but that is more for those who travel on the street with vehicles and not those who cruise about. But like adammexican said, get a beater bike to ride, (so then if it gets stolen for any reason you don't have to worry that ride is gone.) Or like tom said, put a lever and cable on; duck tape the cable to the frame. I really doubt they are going to thoroughly check, it is mostly a glance over. Though if they do thoroughly check it, then wow, i am sorry for you.

I think you just need to chill man, its not the end of the world. Ok so you ride your bmx to work, just throw on some brakes or ride a different bike to work. It's not like you can never bmx again. And get a gyro if you like riding street. They can't destroy your bike if your not breaking any laws.

What are they gonna arrest you for? As long as you haven't broken any laws they can't do shit

Wait, I lied. They're cops. They can do whatever they want because they're above the law
