Bicyclists riding on sidewalks cited

GLOVERSVILLE – Mayor Dayton King announced at the Common Council meeting on Tuesday the city Police Department has begun to ticket residents found to be riding their bicycles on the sidewalk in the downtown area.

King said people riding bikes on the walkway pose a hazard to store owners and shoppers, especially on Main Street.

He advised residents to walk their bikes along the sidewalk on Main Street to avoid being issued a ticket and ensure the safety of those visiting or working in the downtown area.
