Duped Bikers Incensed Over Fake Enforcement Notices

+ More

Outraged cyclists at Stanford University mobilized in response to fliers threatening more strict regulation of bicycle travel on campus, the Stanford Daily reports. The bike aficionados deluged the school's Department of Public Safety with complaints. But it turns out the fliers are a prank: DPS denies distributing any of the notices, which read, "Out of concern for public saftey [sic] the Stanford police will be less tolerant towards bicyclists in violation of traffic laws." DPS notes many of the notice's claims, such as that helmets must be worn at all times, did not reflect current biking laws. --Alison Go
