UC Berkeley police say they have issued 103 bike citations from August to November, a 41% increase over the same period last year, nabbing students for riding through designated “dismount zones” and locking their bikes to railings instead of often-overfilled racks.
UC Berkeley students â€” already squeezed by steep tuition increases â€” are banding together
to protest campus citations for bike infractions that run $220 apiece and exceed many vehicle violations.Â And well they should.
Let’s hope we plan for a much better outcome in Riverside. No one except ousted City of Bell officials would sign off on that.
