State trooper tailgates bicyclist and yells at them


Had to stop abruptly
Passed closely

What happened

State police officer in a marked car followed me too closely, then swerved around me, cutting me off. He then yelled at me to “pick a lane”.

Suggested improvements for this location: Disallow private buses to park in the travel lane. The police officer was likely trying to get around the many buses in the area, causing him to swerve in and out of the travel lanes.
