Yikes I know I could get hit with a few of these:
LIST OF NOTABLE FINES
including fine, court cost and victim fine surcharge
Improper bicycle lighting – $35
Fail to wear proper helmet (under 18) – $80
Two people riding on a bicycle – $110
Riding along crosswalk – $110
Disobey officer directing traffic – $110
No bell or horn on bicycle – $110
Defective bell or horn – $110
Red light, fail to stop – $190
Careless driving – $325
I hope it doesn’t take a fine at some point to straighten me out, but I don’t have a bell on my bike and often cruise through reds if there is no traffic. Not sure I’m a big fan of these rules. But even the rep from the “bike union” quoted in the article seemed to fall in line with these fines..
Okay I guess if I think about it, it makes sense to have them so the cops can have a leg to stand on when enforcing stupid behavior. But to actively have cops hiding behind vans to bust people riding through reds? Not a fan.
