Declare the downtown area a wilderness area and then everyone will " Pack it in, Pack it out."
Government at all levels is an insatiable hog that loves to feed at the trough of the public's pockets. I like to get poetic once in a while.
Pat Since you seem to have some knowledge of the Bible do you remember the part where God says he or as you prefer her will not be mocked? Hmmmmm?
"Passing on your left" works on the core trail. I have not hit a pedestrian yet or come close.
Mike is correct.
Tax collectors fighting over the hide of taxpayers like a pack of hyenas over a zebra carcass.
I had a CDL for 15 years in Routt County and never had an accident, ticket, or killed anybody. I agree that there are many, many, poor, distracted drivers everywhere in the country. What irritates drivers about bicyclists is running stop signs. More cyclists run stop signs than stop at them. Motor vehicles do not consistently run stop signs.
And bicyclists were and are the problem anywhere in Routt County that there are stop signs. I was almost hit as a pedestrian at the rodeo grounds and as a driver on Elk River Road by bicyclists running stop signs. Traffic enforcement is very lax in Routt County for drivers and even more lax for bicyclists. Better not drive drunk. That is enforced as well it should be.
Eric Pat Wet opened the door to my comment. Drivers should get tickets too. Stop signs are bicyclist's biggest transgression. My wife and I were almost hit in a crosswalk by a bicyclist who blew thru a stop sign and my vehicle was almost hit by a female bicyclist who did the same. My observation in 17 years in this town is a higher percentage of cyclists ignore stop signs than drivers do. It is fairly rare to see a vehicle blow through a stop sign. Anyone with their eyes open will constantly see cyclists blowing through them. As I said before, I have never seen a cyclist getting a ticket in this town. I have seen many vehicles getting tickets although not nearly as many as there should be.
Should the bikers who exceed 15 mph be ticketed? I have yet to see a biker get a ticket for anything in 17 years. I keep my biking to the core trail and just worry about pedestrians and not F-150's.
