Ohio Community's Radar Sign Warns Speedy Cyclists

Beachwood, Ohio (AP) -- Police in a Cleveland suburb are using radar to fight speeding on bicycles.

People who walk the paths in Beachwood City Park have been complaining about bicyclists who fly by, Lance Armstrong-style, so police have posted a radar sign to show bikers how fast they're going.

It's similar to the digitized signs that warn motorists about their speeds through construction zones.

The sign typically catches riders going more than 10 mph, the city's speed limit for bicycles in the park.

Police don't give out speeding tickets to bicyclists but do warn them to slow it down.

Some riders say the radar sign may encourage more speeding, because bikers who want to race now have a way to see their top speeds.
