Spread the word! Denver Police are getting serious about bike laws and you face a traffic stop and a ticket if you don’t play by the rules. BikeDenver recently sat down with officers from Denver’s District 6 Police and we offer the following report:
On May 24th, District 6 Police began the first of several ongoing focused enforcement days operations scheduled throughout the year to combat an increase in bike safety law violations. Over 40 bicyclists were ticketed for running red lights or riding on the sidewalk. District 6 will continue once-a-month operations using both bike patrol and patrol cars with a focus on these, and other safety-related bike violations. The fine for any bike infraction is $60. By comparison motorists who run a red light face a $150 ticket.
