Undercover bike officers target unsafe drivers

News you will not see in Maryland[B' Spokes: Yup, you guessed it, we will probably not have anything like this here, so filed under "News you will not see in Maryland. It really saddens me when we passed the three foot law we were hoping for something like this but instead we got MDOT saying in essence "Whenever you cannot safely pass a cyclist you can unsafely pass.", We need something better then this!]

SAN ANTONIO - Undercover officers are targeting unsafe drivers in a sting operation, to enforce the city's "Safe Passing" ordinance.
...

"It's a scary thing because they have this vehicle that's $2,000 pounds and I'm on this 20-30 pound bike. My life is in their hands," Officer Roger Zuniga said.
...

The next cyclists you see could be undercover officers because they plan to continue this sting over the next several months. Officers say they want to educate the public and keep cyclists, and other road users, safe. If you're ticketed, you could have to pay up to a $200 fine.
