LONDON, ENGLAND - JULY 29: A cyclist uses part of the new Cycle Superhighway in Kennington on July 29, 2010 in London, England. The new, blue cycle lanes are designed to provide a safer and faster journey for commuters into central London and the City. The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, will launch his flagship cycling scheme tomorrow which is hoped will help build on the growth in cycle journeys taken on London's major roads.

The Fort Myers Police Department is training more police officers to patrol the streets on bicycles.
Right now, they have 58 officers certified to be bicycle officers.
Officers can be seen and heard more easily and they are more approachable when they are on bicycles.
It is also easier for police officers to maneuver in places like downtown.
