Heads up out there…we’re getting several emails about Dallas police ticketing riders for not wearing helmets. The fine is a staggering $147! Ironically, motorcyclists are allowed to ride without helmets…don’t try to find an explanation.
Sadly, this is the quickest way to lower ridership in our city. A friend of BFOC spoke to us this morning after being ticketed saying he’ll never ride his bike into work again. Not only was he not given a warning first, but apparently the officers were overly assertive.
