Bicyclist cited for traffic offenses
On Monday, September 9, 2019 at approximately 0157 HRS, an officer observed 23 year old Joseph KENNEDY JR of Roxbury Road operating a bicycle haphazardly in the middle of the lane in the first block of West King. The bicycle did not have front or rear lights and KENNEDY appeared to be under the influence but just under the legal limit for per se DUI alcohol. He was warned to walk the bicycle on the sidewalk. A short time later he was observed on traffic cameras again haphazardly riding the bicycle north in the south lane of N. Earl St. between Burd and Fort. Since reasonable warnings didn't suffice, citations were filed charging KENNEDY with 3505 Pedestrian under the influence to be on sidewalks, 3507 for not having lamps as required and 3301c for not operating his pedalcycle on right side of the road.
