SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — In San Francisco it’s against the law for anyone over the age of 13 to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk.
Still, as you might expect, it wasn’t hard for KRON 4′s Stanley Roberts to find lots of “People Behaving Badly” by taking their bikes off the roadway and onto the sidewalk.
Stanley notes there have been too many recent injuries to pedestrians from accidents involving bicycles on the sidewalk.
Now local news blog SFist.com is asking its readers to take photos of so-called “Sidewalk Biking Offenders” and send them in. They’re then displaying those images on this map.

Stanley’s Video Report
Stanley also invites you to tweet him at @KRON4SRoberts with any sightings you may have of sidewalk biking offenders. He also warns you’re not a police officer so don’t put yourself in danger by trying to confront any of these riders yourself.
