Clampdown on 'excessive use' of bicycle bells

Under the proposed law, cyclists may not carry an object higher than their shoulder or wider than the handle bars.

Other offences include riding without at least one hand on the handle bars, excessive use of bells, and wilfully blocking others by stopping in the middle of the road or next to trees, signposts, light fixtures, mailboxes, trashcans or any other areas that obstruct traffic.

Cyclists will also be restricted to riding under 15 kilometers per hour.
