Bikes banned in Colorado town roads

To promote safety town of Black Hawk Colorado has banned bikes from local streets. Police started ticketing all the bicyclists riding through town as of January 2010. Incidentally  Mayor David Spellman a “brain” behind the ban, was convicted of felony assault after he pistol whipped his wife in 2006. So these are the people that write the laws….hmm.  Are we to assume that he is going to ban cars, motorcycles and public transportation too to promote safety?
