Well, I just read that the city is clamping down on e-bikes on the beach trails. That’s good. But what about through the rest of town?

Kids and elders are riding these bikes on the sidewalks. And when they’re on the street, the kids don’t obey the stop signs or traffic lights.

I’ve almost hit a few in the past month, because they don’t think the laws apply to them. I have an e-bike and love it, but it seems like everyone under the age of 15 has one.

I haven’t heard of a death to an e-bike yet, but it will come if the cops don’t clamp down.
