West Hollywood puts teeth in bike law
People who break the bicycle riding law in West Hollywood could soon be fined up to $250 for riding recklessly on city sidewalks.
After receiving complaints from pedestrians startled by or involved in collisions with bike riders, the City Council recently decided to designate such violations as "infractions" and allow deputies to fine lawbreakers. Bicyclists will still be able to ride on sidewalks when there is no designated bike lane on the city street.
The WeHo News has more:
For a third or subsequent infraction occurring within one year of two or more prior infractions that resulted in convictions, a fine not exceeding two hundred fifty dollars ($250) shall be imposed.
