A Boulder County sheriff’s deputy ticketed a 58-year-old woman Monday after catching her driving her car on the paved bike path alongside the Boulder-bound lanes of U.S. 36 on Davidson Mesa.
Dispatchers began receiving reports of a silver car driving on the U.S. 36 bikeway around 9 a.m. Monday, sheriff’s spokeswoman Carrie Haverfield said. The vehicle also was captured by a driver with a dashcam who posted the video to reddit later that morning.
When a deputy found the car, the driver said she mistakenly had gotten onto the path near McCaslin Boulevard, thinking it was a frontage road, Haverfield said.
