10-13 Pittsburgh Police Bike Patrol

A bike unit police officer was struck by a car in Pittsburgh this afternoon around 2:45 p.m. at Penn and North Atlantic avenues in Garfield.

First, he/she is awesome for being a police officer.
Doubly awesome for being a bike riding police officer.
Trebly awesome for being on the street, in traffic, in January - sure, you see them in July and you think, sweet gig, ride a bike around town. Seems like it's not just a fair weather job.

I have Kevlar tires and carry a cellphone to bail me out. They roll with Kevlar vests and guns, and chase the bad guys.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the officer, and I hope they're back on the bike soon.
