In Colorado, it seems the police are minimizing face-to-face contact by reducing traffic stops. The few weeks of reduced traffic are over. I live on a scenic route and bicycle, jogger, motorcycle, auto, and truck traffic are as heavy as a mid-summer weekend. We rode 3 vintage bikes 100 miles yesterday, on state highways county roads and Estes Park streets, mid-morning to avoid traffic and had most of the roads to ourselves until noon. There was lots of road construction. We all wear bandanas or masks in case we encounter anyone---but we didn't. Covid-19 cases near here are high and re-openings are gradual and measured. We do not have testing, so we won't know what works for retail and manufacturing. 52% of the deaths here are older than 80. I'm 72. Stay safe.. BobHi Andy,
Not sure why you would? When this "lockdown" malarkey started, based on what swmbo said she was reading on Wastebook, I did wonder if it'd turn into a snoopers' charter. However, the vast majority of Chief Constables have gone on at least local TV and said they "police by consent", the few that did think they were arbiters of the detail of people's lives have had their chains jerked by the politicians. As far as riding or driving's concerned, it was pronounced some time ago you can ride/drive anywhere for exercise, the guideline being the exercise period should be at least twice the ride/drive period. You return home, say, two hours after you departed; anyone asks, your rode for half-an-hour, walked for an hour and rode home. You really think the police will set up an investigation for corroborating witnesses?
I'm out and about anyway as a "key worker"; while I've a letter on company headed notepaper to say so, I haven't seen the local Old Bill doing anything different from what they did before the "lockdown" - certainly no road-blocks or similar (not that it'd do 'em any good, too many minor roads, tracks, 4WD's and off-road bikes ... ).
Ime, the worst problem has been trying to do any quick shopping when the masked knob-ends are out, the Trolley Two-Step palls very rapidly ... However, they all seem to be back self-isolating in time for the daily 6 o'clock doom-'n'-gloom episode from the Bullsh1t Broadcasting Corporation so that's when I go.
