Hains Point Stop signs.
POSTED: 7/11/11 1:57 PM

Just a quick heads up to all the club members. On my way out to the training tri yesterday (Sunday) morning, I was pulled over by the Park Police for running a stop sign on my bike ($20 ticket). It is also important to note that it is federal law to carry a government issued ID card whenever using a National Park (another $20 ticket). Beware.

Definitely. I saw three bikers pulled over yesterday morning. This was in addition to the group I was riding with getting a stern warning as we approached the stop sign.

Seems like this is a big issue every year for two or three weeks in July, then they go back to not caring. I wonder if it's something they have marked in their calendars. Thanks for the heads up.

I was actually "pulled over" on my bike -- lights and all -- at the stop sign in early June, but got lucky and pedaled away with just a warning.

That same lovely park police pulled my friend's car over when we speed up to pass the speed skaters. They were skating at 22mph - and we had to go up to 35mph to saftey overtake them and their pace car (who waved up to go on) in a timely manner. Apparently, the police didn't think that was any reason to speed over the limit of 25 mph. Thankfully he let us off with a lecture and warning before zooming away himself.
