Ordinance Make 2 Changes to Municipal Code
New ordinance gives the Arlington Heights Police Department the ability to write compliance tickets to bicyclists violating rules that protect pedestrians and the bicyclists. The ordinance allows police officers to write a local ordinance ticket (including the option of a warning ticket) instead of a state traffic ticket that would require bicyclists to go to Cook County Circuit Court (administrative adjudication vs county court proceedings).
A second part of the ordinance involves regulating the prohibition of trespassing (i.e., using the public parking garages for a purpose other than parking a vehicle or bicycle), and leaving personal property in public parking garages.
