SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — A new guide is helping local law enforcement officers keep everyone on the streets safer this summer.
The “Law Enforcement Reference Guide” was created with help from the Bicycle Coalition of Maine. It lists a number of common infractions made by bicyclists, pedestrians, and drivers when all are sharing the road.
Police refer to it as a kind of “cheat sheet” that helps them to see a violation, and quickly refer to the statute they can site a person under.
So far, the police departments using the guide on focused traffic enforcement include South Portland, Portland, Yarmouth, Scarborough and the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.
