Bicyclists seen riding fast down Main Street, blowing through stop sign

by Jay Hamburger The Park Record

The Park City Police Department on Sunday afternoon received a complaint that bicyclists were riding fast down Main Street and not stopping at stop signs.

The police were contacted at 1:43 p.m. on an undisclosed location on Main Street. According to public police logs, someone flagged down an officer with the complaint, telling the officer the bicyclists were "speeding down" Main Street. It was not clear from public police logs how many bicyclists were spotted. It was also not clear which stop signs the bicyclists might have ridden through.

There are stop signs at the Main Street-Daly Avenue intersection and at the intersection of Main Street and Heber Avenue.

Bicyclists are required to follow traffic laws, including stopping at stop signs. They are sometimes seen riding through the stop signs at the Daly Avenue and Heber Avenue intersections along Main Street, however.

The Police Department once had an officer who stressed bicyclist safety, stopping several of them after observing them riding through stop signs without stopping.
