Bicyclists who ignore the law are asking for a traffic ticket in Shelburne. Police Chief James Warden says officers are writing tickets for blatant offenses such as running stop signs or red lights. Warden said the crackdown is a response to numerous complaints this spring about scofflaw bicyclists on the town’s scenic roads. The tickets have led to a burst of comments on the website of the Green Mountain Bicycle Club. One rider reported getting a $214 ticket and two points off their driver’s license for rolling through a stop sign.
