Cranbrook, BC (May 19, 2016) – Those who like to ride their bikes or skateboards are asked to please stay off the sidewalks around the City.
City staff fields a regular number of calls from the public every spring and summer complaining of some near misses between riders, boarders and pedestrians – especially in the downtown.
Under the City’s Streets & Traffic Bylaw “no person shall ride a cycle, which includes a skateboard, on any sidewalk”. Being caught by Bylaw Services riding a bicycle or skateboard on a sidewalk can result in a $25 fine.
If you have questions, please contact City of Cranbrook Bylaw Services at 250-489-0263.
