Letter: Sidewalk riders: Get to know us, we're harmless
I noticed in the Police Beat section of the paper that a person was given a $50 ticket for riding their bike on the sidewalk. Who would have thought that a bicyclist would be such a horrible criminal so as to take the sidewalk?
This person was actually given the citation when he was riding home sober after bar closing. It sounds like the officer who issued the citation was having a bad night and could have possibly used some shut eye. I believe a warning would have been sufficient.
