More Speed Traps on Lookout Mountain
Last month, I posted that I got hit by RADAR twice on Lookout Mountain in Golden, but not ticketed. Today, they were ticketing cyclists for speeding. I saw it on my way up, and it looked like the cyclist was getting a written summons. Not sure if it was a warning, or a full ticket, but be careful there.
I can (kind of) see why they are doing this. I counted cyclists I saw on the way up vs cars, and we are outnumbering cars 3:1 on weekends (at least for my sample time).
I warned several descending cyclists, but I am not sure that any could actually hear me. The speed trap was gone by the time we came back down, but we rode another twenty miles or so on the other side of the mountain.
