From the Collegian:
In the past month, bike cops have issued 376 tickets, collecting a combined total of approximately $8,675 in fines.
The CSU bike cops are out and they are not slowing down. They are cracking down on and ticketing students on campus and making sure they abide by traffic laws.
“Our job is teach students how not to get into trouble and to keep them safe,” said Matthew Staley, Colorado State University officer.
Bike cops are known across campus for many different reasons. CSU graduate officer Matthew Staley takes pride in his work as he tries to make CSU a safer place for its students.
Students who commute by bike are getting pulled over by CSU bike police. According to Officer Staley, the most common ticketing offenses are biking in a dismount zone, riding through stop signs, not registering their bikes and lacking a headlight when riding their bikes when it is dark out.
“Everything we pull students over for is regarding their safety … for instance, if a student gets pulled over at night without a light, we often hand out free lights,” Staley said.
