Santa Bicyclist Threatened With Fines For Riding A Trike With Ad Signs In Pinellas County

This is incredible -- Pinellas County government is telling a bicyclist who rides a trike with advertising signs that his bike-riding is illegal.

The bicyclist wears a Santa outfit while pedaling his trike with the ads.

I don't think that his bike-riding was the problem... it was the advertising. I still side with the guy for constitutional reasons, though.

However, the bit about not being allowed to bicycle on the sidewalk is a little sketchy. I'm not sure what to make of that; does Pinellas County have any regulations about bicycles on sidewalks in certain areas?
