Metro reports that the Police Department will be cracking down on bike riders who violate the rules of the road, dispatching 12 more officers around Center City.
Red light-blowers beware: the Philadelphia Police Department, in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities, on Wednesday announced they’ll be boosting the enforcement of bicycle traffic laws through the month of June.
That means full stops at stop signs, waiting for red to turn green even when no cars are coming (damn), and the things you really shouldn’t do: ride the wrong way on a one way or riding on sidewalks.
Since South Philly has such a high percentage of bike commuters, we figured we’d let you know. Then, after July, the Police Department will go back to ignoring the issue.
