Another bicyclist pulled over by Park City police
July 1, 2011
A Park City police officer recently pulled over a bicyclist after watching the rider run a stop sign, the Police Department said, the second such case in June.
Police Chief Wade Carpenter said an officer was on a routine patrol in Park Meadows when the rider went through a stop sign without stopping first on the 2300 block of Meadows Drive. The case was reported at just before 2 p.m. on June 20.
The police officer stopped the bicyclist and warned the person for failing to stop at a stop sign.
Meanwhile, in another case on June 20, the Police Department received a complaint that a bicyclist did not stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Sidewinder Drive and Doc Holliday Drive. The report was filed at just after 11 a.m.
An officer found the bicyclist and issued a warning for not stopping, Carpenter said. The bicyclist is a 22-year-old man who lives in the Snyderville Basin.
The two cases came less than two weeks after another bicyclist was stopped by a police officer after the officer witnessed the rider run a stop sign in Park Meadows. In that case, the rider was on or close to the 2000 block of Lucky John Drive.
