North Bay Police say stay off the sidewalks
Don’t ride your bike on the sidewalk in North Bay or risk the consequences.
That’s the warning from the North Bay Police as they try to bring a growing problem under control.
The department has gotten businesses to put up posters in their windows telling cyclists to stay off the sidewalks.
Sam Adams, a summer student with the North Bay Police, says the department has fielded numerous calls from businesses and pedestrians who sometimes are nearly hit by a cyclist.
Adams says it appears the most incidents of bikes on sidewalks are occurring along Main Street.
She says the fine for getting caught riding on the sidewalk with a bike is $65.
