Chico Police is putting the brakes on bicyclists that aren’t obeying the rules of the road.

The increase in bike citations started a few weeks ago, following a nasty bicycle versus automobile accident.

Since then, officers have been posted throughout downtown Chico keeping a lookout for bicycle infractions.

Most of the infractions happen near Chico State University, where officers say college student often ride recklessly.

I observed more than 50 bicyclists and skateboards go through the intersection and through the stop signs like they weren't even there,” said Mike DiGiordano of the Chico Police Department.
