LoCO is reporting that Eureka’s crazy bike ordinance has been sent back to the City Attorney for a rewrite. If Day-Wilson was responsible for its content in the first place, no wonder why it has been catching so much flak. Attorney Day Wilson has left behind a trail of bad legal advice wherever she’s gone.
Outlaw Bikers invade Eureka???
The Examiner recently reported on the Eureka Police Departments priorities under the leadership of Chief Mills:
True to their promise, EPD is “Charging Forward” with pushing a new bicycle ordinance.
It’s great to see that they backed off of the ridiculous idea of turning your 8 year old child into a criminal for riding a bike on the sidewalk. However, the bonehead ideas just keep spilling out of Mill’s head. According to the Lost Coast Outpost, two of the provisions are:
“A person shall not leave a bicycle, except in a bicycle rack.” And if a rack’s not available, you must make sure it’s not blocking a driveway, sidewalk or door”
“No person riding or operating a bicycle shall perform or attempt to perform any acrobatic, fancy or stunt riding upon any public place in the City.”
WTF? No Seriously WTF?
This is what this Chief wants to waste police department resources on, spending precious hours wasting officers and PSO’s time? Hey folks! We have two recent unsolved murders to deal with in this town.
Here’s and idea! How about finding the person who stabbed the teenager to death or the person that shot down a man on 15th Street? It is beyond belief to think that officers in Eureka will be focused on writing tickets to young folks for “fancy” bike riding, instead of solving murders.
