Saturday morning crackdown on bicycle safety nets dozens of tickets

By the Ottawa Citizen, July 6, 2019

Ottawa police traffic officers showed they’re taking July’s crackdown on bicycle safety seriously Saturday morning.

A sunrise stakeout on Hunt Club Road netted officers two dozen tickets in a couple of hours.

The offences included “2 stunt drivers both going more than 120 in the 60 zone,” tweeted Const. Jon Hall, better known as @TheBeardedCop .

“High speeds like that make it dangerous for everyone!”

Hall’s colleague, Const. Phil (@CarbineKane) Kane weighed in later with the bust of a driver doing 56 km/h over the km/h speed limit on the Blackburn Bypass.
