Seems like in Sacramento police been actively enforcing no brakes law for the last 6 months. The district attorney’s office says they’ve seized 18 bikes for “evidence” and 19 for “safekeeping” in 2009. Sacramento’s lead bike cop, Sgt. David Valdez, however, says the city is just enforcing California law, which states: “No person shall operate a bicycle on a roadway unless it is equipped with a brake.” Valdez argues that fixed-gear bicyclists riding without hand brakes are breaking this law. Both the city police and district attorney’s office do not consider legs as a braking mechanism… which is funny, since hand brake can not operate without human muscle. So what is the difference between braking with your hand muscles or your leg muscles? For more on this story check out this article.
