Municipal by-law officers will be taking a stroll along London’s pathways this week — but they won’t be doing it for fun.
The City of London says it will be on the lookout for people riding e-bikes along the city’s pathway system, specifically the Thames Valley Parkway.
E-scooters aren’t allowed on the city’s multi-use pathway system at all, while e-bikes are only allowed if the rider is using the pedals, not the motor.
Anyone caught using either device will face a $100 fine.
The City says they’re performing the crackdown to maintain safety on the pathways.
Meanwhile, cyclists, skateboarders, and in-line skaters aren’t off the hook either.
They are asked not to exceed the 20 km/h speed limit and to use proper cycling etiquette — which includes ringing a bell or sounding a horn to notify pedestrians when passing.
