We have a naked bike ride here in town every year, lol. If that doesn't cause a pile up I dont think a skirt will.

Here is a photo from the article. Apparently it is the same skirt she was wearing when pulled over:
And, yes. That is pretty ridiculous. I was expecting her to almost be nude or what not but she looks like anyone else going down the street.
On a side note, my mother did cause a wreck about 10 years ago. lol She was involved in a protest and a motorist driving by was looking at her and rammed into another car. Oops! LOL!
So I guess it happens but the officer in this case was still being ridiculous.

She looks sweet! What in the world was wrong with the officer? I was expecting her to be in something really revealing, but I grew up on the beach and so to see women in thongs and string bikini tops walking all over town was just another day at the beach. I feel for the lady.

I think the policeman was just being a bit lecherous.
Stopping a woman for some phony reason was probably his equivalent of saying ''do you come here often, love ?''.
At the time, Rijcken said, she wasn’t sure that she hadn’t broken the law. “If you’re by yourself in a different country and a police guy comes really angrily at you, you get scared,” she said.
This is not the first time an NYPD officer has stopped cyclists for completely frivolous non-offenses. In April, a private school administrator received a ticket for biking with a tote bag on her handlebars. The police have not responded to a Streetsblog inquiry about Rijcken’s allegations.
Her harassment at the hands of the police has colored Rijcken’s perception of not only New York City but the United States. “I was shocked,” she said. “In Holland, people refer to America as the country of freedom.”
