Spring soon will be here, and when it comes many students will
drsg out tbfir bicycles for transport 2 ti on around the city.
For students who are part time residents, here are some rules
and regulations from the Lincoln Police Department that bicyclists
ought to know.
Lieutenant Ernest Berry said, "Operate a bicycle as though it
were a motor vehicle, with all the laws that pertain to motor
vehicles. That's probably a wise rule because bicyclists are more
likely to be injured" than car drivers.
Some regulations more specific than the vehicle laws are:
It is unlawful for bicyclists to carry packages, bundles or
articles which prevents keeping both hands on the handlebars.
-Persons riding bicycles should ride single file.
Persons riding bicycles should keep as near as possible to the
right hand curb.
It is against the law to ride a bicycle upon any street or public
way within the city without having it registered, and without
having a number plate displayed.
The city provides a registration certificate corresponding to a
license plate. Registration fee is 50 cents. Licenses may be obtained
at any city fire station from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Every bicycle operated on Lincoln's streets must be equipped
with brakes, a red reflector button not less than two inches in
diameter placed on the rear, and a light on the front. The light
must be used one-half hour after sunset to one-half hour before
sunrise. Bicycles are inspected when registered and may be rejected
if found to be in an unsafe condition.
-It is unlawful to ride a bicycle on the sidewalks between "M"
St. and "CT St. and 1 0th St. to 1 6th St.
It is unlawful to attach a bicycle to a fire hydrant.
Violation of the bicycle regulations is a misdemeanor and
conviction may carry a fine up to $100. The violator also may be
ordered to surrender the bicycle for up to six months, or may lose
the registration plate for a period of six months.
