  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 08/15/11 4:48 pm | updated: 08/15/11 4:48 pm

This summer, State Rep. Chris Ross introduced... Read More

Philadelphia bicyclists beware.....traffic citations may be coming your way.
Philadelphia Traffic Court president Judge Thomasine Tynes suggests, making city bicyclists register their bikes, cite them for moving violations such as riding on the sidewalk or blowing through stop signs, and then have those tickets dealt with by Traffic Court.
