You can now report cyclists causing problems in Bensalem
Now that the weather is warmer, more and more people are going out to enjoy the sun and the fresh air. Cyclists are also on the move, but these days some cyclists have become a danger in Bensalem, causing distress both for cyclists and for drivers on the road. I’m not gonna lie, I almost bumped into someone riding a bike because they weren’t wearing bright clothes so I could barely see them in the dark!
Patch.com said that in an effort to keep everyone safe on the roads, Bensalem police have created a web page for residents to report issues involving cyclists in the township. Patch.com reports that “police said there had been numerous recent complaints about cyclists blocking traffic and otherwise causing problems on municipal roads.”
The most reckless areas for cycling are Springdale Drive and Wexford Road and police are urging anyone who sees reckless behavior to report it through the webpage’s new portal. Patch.com explained how the webpage portal will work. In the portal you can upload photos and videos of the cyclists, making sure to include their faces, and once received, the police will “investigate, identify and summon the appropriate persons with the appropriate traffic violations”. Of course, the police ask you not to put yourself or someone else in danger to obtain this evidence. The webpage portal should only be used for cyclists causing trouble in the township of Bensalem and if there are serious complaints or safety concerns, residents should call 911.
