  1. Just because someone is not killed is no reason for police to not cite people breaking the law. I have friends that have been badly injured by bikes on the sidewalk. What would happen if I drove my car on the sidewalk or drove the wrong way on a one-way street or ran stop signs and stop lights? This has gone on too long and someone needs to do something!

    • If you were an “undocumented refugee” just trying to make a few hundred dollars cash a day, you could drive your car on the sidewalk too without fear of a summons.
