So , I wonder how they're going to get the crowds in and out if they are policeing heavily enough to give this list some teeth.
Are they going to stop each bike and rummage through the saddle bags ?Tear up your ticket and send you away if you try to smuggle in a sandwich, an apple ?
What will happen with the no video recording devices rule in a day where every digital camera and smart phone will make video recordings. Are they planning to rip Go-Pro cameras off riders helmets ?
These rules certainly hit me as Draconion. I doubt they'll be searches .
But they wrote and published the rules.
