Would you want a ticket for good bicycling behavior?

Police in Boulder are handing out rewards this week to bicyclists who pay attention “while walking or riding their bicycles on city streets,” as CBS4 reported.

This kind of reminds me of those Virginia officers who pulled over at least one vehicle to give its occupants ice cream, except Boulder’s thing is way less annoying.

In Boulder, the officers also gave out citations to rule breakers, according to CBS. The idea was to leave an impression – to make people remember to pay attention at dangerous intersections.

The prizes for good behavior include coupons. Personally, I think it’d be cool if they gave you a special siren you could flash at jerks on the road.
