SHELBURNE — Hot-shot bicyclists who ignore the law are asking for a traffic ticket in one Vermont town.
Shelburne Police Chief James Warden said officers are writing tickets for “blatant” offenses such as running stop signs or red lights. Warden told the Burlington Free Press that the crackdown is a response to numerous complaints this spring about scofflaw bicyclists on the town’s scenic roads.
The tickets have led to a burst of comments on the website of the Green Mountain Bicycle Club. One rider reports getting a $214 ticket and two points off their driver’s license for rolling through a stop sign.
Warden said his department is not out to get bicyclists, but it’s gotten to the point where police had to do something to make sure no one gets hurt.MORE IN Vermont NewsMONTPELIER — As his July 15 moving date nears, Jeremy Dodge's seller's remorse has begun to... Full Story
