Bicyclists are permitted to ride on the shoulder of the San Tomas Expressway in Santa Clara, California. Pedestrians, however, are not permitted on this expressway.
Akos was riding his bike on the expressway when he stopped to take this photo of a stopped car on the shoulder. This California Highway Patrol officer pulled over to give Akos a ticket. The violation: breaking the "No Pedestrians" rule!
