ONLY CERTAIN BICYCLES ALLOWED ON SIDEWALKS

With the warmer weather finally arriving, the St.Thomas Police Service are reminding residents about the bicycles on sidewalks by-law.

The by-law states that only bicycles with a tire size of 5.1cm (20 Inches) or less are allowed to ride on sidewalks.  The purpose is to allow young children to bike on sidewalks while they are learning, and it's based on tire size not age because most children do not carry identification.

The fine for disobeying the by-law is $65.00 an can even lead to careless driving charges if the cyclist is aggressive.
