Stopping at stop signs means cyclists, too
Rolling stops at neighborhood stop sign intersections are common here in Menlo, enforced usually by stealth Menlo Park motorcycle cops. Such was the case early this morning on the corner of Lemon and Oak. A motorcycle officer had positioned himself just out of view of traffic traveling west on Oak. His first offender was not a person behind the wheel of an automobile but rather a man on a bicycle, who was issued a citation a block away, coincidentally at the next widely ignored stop sign intersection. A signal to other cyclists who routinely forget that the California vehicular code applies to them? And automobiles, too, according to call from Sgt. Pricket of MPPD.
