For some reason, when the SFPD Motor Patrol hands out tickets and/or admonishments to cyclists who blow through the crosswalks of The Wiggle bike route without breaking cadence (they call this an “Idaho Stop,” even though it’s not), that kind of enforcement action invariably gets called a “sting” operation.
But a sting must involve some form of deception, right? And the cops just stand there waiting for cyclists to blow through a stop sign.
So, what gets called a sting aint a sting.
As here with the cabbie. He was speeding, more than most, one assumes, and then he got a ticket.
No sting involved.
