Bike Car

From the video description:
This was recorded 26 October 2007 in downtown Toronto, Canada.
Michel de Broin, an artist, had totally stripped down a 1986 Buick Regal and outfitted it with 4 independent pedal and gear mechanisms. This was part of 'art' piece being exhibited at the Mercer Union Gallery (24 October - 8 December).
Anyway, the police noticed the car's test drive and thought to pull it over and check it out.

You know what is crazy about this? That the police officer's reasoning is that it is unsafe -- more unsafe than riding a bike on the road with cars?? At least this offers the 4 bike-riders protection while riding their bikes -- I suppose a horse-drawn carriage would be considered unsafe and illegal too? Tell that to the Amish. People can't handle unusual -- so they have to squash it. ;-P
