The Senior Action Network Wants Bikes Off of San Francisco’s Sidewalks

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

The Senior Action Network reminds us:

According to the City Traffic Code Article 5, Sec. 96, it shall be unlawful to ride a bicycle upon any sidewalk area, except juveniles under the age of 13 and not in front of schools, stores, or buildings used for business purposes.

To get the word out, they’re back with their sidewalk stencils. Take the bike survey, if you dare.
