December 30, 2010

A motorcycle officers pulls over a vehicle who used the bike lane as a right turn lane.

The Tucson Police department was awarded another grant for targeted enforcement of bicycle and pedestrian laws.

According to an email from Sergeant Jerry Skeenes, who ran the targeted enforcement that wrapped up in October, they will begin deploying officers in early January.

Skeenes said this enforcement campaign will be less intense because it will stretch over a longer period of time.

Skeenes is looking for more feedback from the bike community.

Last fall the enforcement focused less on stop signs and more on wrong-way riding and sidewalk riding.
