A Critical Mass of One?

Local news reports a cyclist on I-5, clogging up traffic and trying to get on the HOV lane! Meaning he had to cross 5+ lanes of 60+ mph traffic, wow.

From the report:

Witnesses told the State Patrol that they saw the man riding south in the
right lane about 2:10 p.m. The bicyclist then cut across all lanes of traffic
and into the car-pool lane, said Trooper Curt Boyle. Motorists pulled over,
stopped the man and held him for troopers.

When troopers arrived, they got into a scuffle with the man, Boyle
said. The man was being detained in handcuffs in the back of a squad car on
Interstate 5 near Northeast 130th Street but has since been taken to Harborview
Medical Center for a mental evaluation, Boyle said.

It is long way to Louisiana from Seattle. Bizarre.
