DAN VETH, Dana Point
There has been much discussion about speeding e-bikes that now routinely terrorize what used to be pleasant shared pathways in our community. Laws have been passed and signs posted, but the speeders persist unabated.
Just the other day, I was passed on the bike path by an e-bike doing at least 30 mph. After it passed me, it continued down the path, riding right past a sheriff coming the other way on a motorcycle.
What’s needed is enforcement. The officer made no attempt to stop the speeder, but I am certain he would have if our city leaders would make it clear that enforcement is important and that we are willing to pay for it.
If a few of these speeding bikes were impounded with a $1,000 fine to get a bike released, some behaviors would improve, and our paths would once again provide a pleasant shared experience for all.
