Infractions by bicyclists on Jackson’s streets have escalated to the point that it is being brought up today before the town council.  Mayor Mark Barron says he has been being approached by a significant enough number of constituents that he believes it’s time to formally discuss the problem in council.  Furthermore, he says he knows he is not the only town council member who has received complaints about some bicyclists in the community – but he stresses the infractions do not involve every bicyclist.  Barron says, “Most cyclists follow the rules of the road but there are some flagrant violations by bicyclists on the road, and somebody’s going to get hurt.”  Consequently, he says council members have asked for a discussion on the matter. Barron reminds cyclists in town that they are responsible to obey all vehicle laws and failure to do so can show up on the same record with motor vehicle infractions. Barron says the police department is authorized to issue citations for traffic violations to bicyclists and they have been doing so.  Council will focus today on what more can be done.
