Evidently. last week, the Tucson Police Department's Capt Perry Tarrant was at the Tuesday Night Community Bike Ride again to make sure the ride bike marshals (men, women and everyone in between) had reflective vests and handed out lights to those without. Tarrant remains concerned the ride is blocking traffic and that riders are not safe.
The group's route for this week crossed Speedway Boulevard, and had to deal with a pedestrian crossing on Oracle Road north of Drachman, and then Euclid. The group planned and successfully crossed Speedway on foot in order to keep the group together and--more importantly--remain legal.
On Erik Ryberg's Tucson Bike Lawyer blog, he and Elizabeth have an update and share their perspectives.
