It turns out that John Law takes a dim view of human-powered cars on the streets of Toronto, as artist Michel de Broin discovered to his dismay when he attempted to take his pedal-powered 1986 Buick Regal out for a little spin last year.

Safer, in fact, than gasoline-powered vehicles, and so he is fighting his Operation of Unsafe Vehicle ticket. [National Post]
