Guest Opinion: With rules, we can squeeze bikes into car territory

by Mac Clayton

When my son Nick was in Jordan Middle School, he got a traffic ticket while riding his bike. Approaching an intersection he crossed to the left side of the street to use a crosswalk on that side. The policeman told him he was supposed to ride on the right side of the road and wasn't supposed to bike in a crosswalk. To "pay" his ticket, Nick had to take a bike safety course. I think he had to do community service, too.
