Skagway Police Want to Reduce Bike Accidents

Police in Skagway are trying to reduce the number of impaired pedalers. Chief Ray Leggett says drunks riding around town on bicycles are a problem for emergency responders. Leggett says police also have to deal with bike thefts on a daily basis. He asked the Skagway assembly to pass a motion that would allow police to fine impaired bikers $300 dollars. That was voted down but police and politicians say they’re now exploring other ways to deal with the problem.
