Bike safety, not Burke, a priority

The state of Illinois and the city of Dixon have a law that bicycle riders at night must have lights and reflectors.

I have stopped at Mayor Burke’s office and talked to him about this law and tried to get it enforced. Also, I’ve called him on the phone and I talked to him on the street. Nothing has been done since I started talking to him 3.5 years ago.

Saving someone from getting hit while riding their bike at night isn’t his number one priority. His number one priority is Jim Burke.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
