Denver Police Issuing Tickets to Cyclists
, Denver's cycling advocacy group posted this on facebook a few days ago:
"Heads Up, Denver! District 6 Police will be issuing tickets for people running red lights in the next few weeks. Focus areas are Capitol Hill, LoDo and Ballpark. Ride Safe Everyone!
Focus Areas were chosen in response to crash data and citizen complaints. Officers will be on bikes and motorcycles and they will ticket people in cars and on bikes for traffic infractions."
I spoke with a bike cop today and he told me he didn't know if there is a speed limit on the cherry creek trail, but there have been unofficial-looking signs posted lately which read "SPEED LIMIT 15MPH." But I refuse to abide by the sign, as legal speed limit signs include white with black font and yellow with black font. He said that in wash park, there are policemen with radar guns, scoping out cyclists and issuing tickets for those riding in excess of 20mph (speed limit is posted everywhere in the park: 15mph).
