Question Cops/Anyone- bicycle infraction- car insurance ^?

not sure where to post this but this seems like the most appropriate place. Does anyone know if I get a traffic citation on my bicycle (ie. no red taillamp fixed to bike) it affects my car insurance. Logically, this seems ridiculous , but hopefully I can get a clear answer. mahalo

i doubt it, cause you're insuring your car, not your bike. plus, that is an equipment violation and not a moving violation.

LAWL that's messed up! were you tagged riding at night? what bored cop tags for that sort of shit?

tag idiots talking on their phones while driving instead!

Cops are usually on AlaWai blvd tagging bicyclists for riding on the sidewalk. Ive seen them go as far as check ID numbers on the frame. But usually they run the sticker and ask for your ID. I wouldn't be surprised if they nitpick on details like taillight/headlight stuff. Should have nothing to do with your insurance though. Like lois said its an equipment violation.

thanks titan

i was riding before dusk and was pulled over for riding on the sidewalk. by the time they started writing the ticket (cuz you know they take like 15 minutes), it was dusk, and they added the red light infraction as well. probably going to go to court on this one...

as a follow up question then... would a moving violation on a bicycle (such as biking in the opposite direction of the flow of traffic? or riding on the sidewalk) affect my car insurance?

like you said... probably not...
but i find no information online regarding this...
