He’ll be riding his bicycle this week throughout Juneau to raise awareness of bicyclists.
Since June 1st, the Juneau Police Department has had five reports of vehicle and bike collisions. The problem seems to be drivers who fail to give bicycle riders the right of way.
Chief Bryce Johnson wants to encourage drivers to watch out for bicyclists on the road. He’s participating in a contest called “Spot the Chief for a Ten Spot.”
He may be easy to see in a spotted shirt and helmet. The first ten callers to JPD will get a 10-dollar bill, but you need to call within two hours of seeing him on his bicycle and also when you’re not driving!
The Capital City Chapter of the Alaska Peace Officers Association is putting up the cash for the prizes. All the ten dollar winners will be entered into a drawing for a bike tune up from Cycle Alaska.
