Just a heads-up on this announcement I received from firstname.lastname@example.org. It amazes me that the police would choose a week during bike month to blitz riders. The announcement reads as follows:
The 'Safe Cycling ? Share the Responsibility' Police Campaign starts
June 16, 2008
The annual police enforcement campaign for Toronto cyclists begins
officially on Monday, June 16.
Police will be enforcing Highway Traffic Act violations such as No bell
($110), Failure to Stop/Stop Sign ($110), red light ($180), No front
light/rear light beginning a half hour before sunset, Sidewalk riding,
Unsafe lane change, failure to signal, and others, and encouraging
proper safety equipment for all wheeled road users. Conviction can result
in points on a driver's licence in addition to the fines. The campaign,
also known as 'Bike and Wheel Sport Safety', lasts for one week.
Cyclists are advised to consider carefully the rules of the road and
the Highway Traffic Act as it applies to them before setting off.
