Cambridge cops, especially near Central Sq., will pull you over and
ticket you for minor infractions.
I was given a $10 ticket (or was it $20?) last year for pulling through
a red light at Mass Ave. and Inman St., even though the lights were in a
4-way walk configuration and I don't recall coming anywhere within a
mile of a ped. Several people came up to me after and asked what the
heck a motorcycle cop was doing pulling me over right in front of city
hall. According to a couple of friends experiences, it might be
possible to sweet talk them into just a warning if you're lucky.
You have to remember that there's a police station a block away;
presumably they are in part trying to encourage safe riding in light of
some bad accidents near there, but ..
