Violators may be ticketed for failure to yield right-of-way for pedestrians, failure to obey stop signs and failure to obey crosswalk signals. At 11 a.m. this Saturday, Sept. 11, police officers on bicycles will lead a “ride along” down the W&OD trail to highlight the importance of sharing the road and safety. The 2nd Annual Bicyclist and Pedestrian Awareness week continues through Sept. 18.
