A Tucson Police Department officer attended Wednesday’s Tucson-Pima County Bicycle Advisory Committee to brief them about the department’s targeted enforcement of bicycle and pedestrian laws.

According to the officer, just under 300 cyclists, pedestrians and drivers were cited in April.

Of those citations, 82 were cyclists riding on the sidewalk, 26 were cited for riding without a headlight and 15 cyclists were cited for failure to stop at stop signs.

  1. How about a public service announcement on TV with a positive bicycle spin to it? Like, blah, blah, blah, with so many new people taking up bike riding in Tucson TPD would like to inform new riders of some bicycle laws they may not be aware of, did you know riding on the sidewalk is illegal? Blah blah blah.

    It would cut down on crime and promote cycling, which would be beneficial to law enforcement and the cycling community.

    ironic, though, that the psa are hidden away (not exactly broadcast on tv — seen one lately?). It all makes perfect sense in Huckleberry/Chaneckaland… where the primary purpose is to build a velodrome as close to Phoenix as he can get it, and an urban loop that really isn’t…

  3. Eighty-two cyclists now know not to ride on the sidewalk. Hopefully, none were coasting to or from a bike rack, because that would be lame. Stay classy, TPD.
