Bicyclist fighting Larimer County ticket for failing to move over

LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. - A bicyclist is fighting a $22 ticket he received from a Larimer County deputy for failing to move to the side of a road when the patrol car passed him.

Douglas Baker says he was complying with a new Colorado law that requires motorists to wait to pass if the road isn't clear and to give cyclists a 3-foot berth.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan, the sheriff's office has launched an internal investigation after Baker said the deputy came dangerously close to hitting him.
