Bicycle Violator Diversion Program

The Alameda Police Department introduced two new bicycle safety programs on December 1st. The first rewards children for demonstrating safe cycling skills, and the second offers a diversion program for adults cited under the California Vehicle Code.

Under the California Vehicle Code (CVC), a bicyclist is considered a motorist when on the roadway. For example, a cyclist who runs a stop sign could be cited for “Failure to Stop at a Stop Sign” and fined over $200.

In lieu of a fine, the Bicycle Diversion Program offers Bicycle Traffic School for cyclists cited under the California Vehicle Code.

Under the program, violators have 30 days from the date of the violation to pay a $50 administrative fee for the two-hour safety training course. On completion of the course, the citation will be dismissed. If the violator elects not to attend the training, the citation will be submitted to the Clerk of the Court for standard processing. Violators are eligible for the Bicycle Diversion Program once per calendar year.

Classes will be held at the Alameda Fire Training Facility, located in Building 522, at 431 Stardust Place.

Classes will be held on the second Thursday of every month from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and administered by the East Bay Bicycle Coalition.

The goal of the program is to decrease the number of bicycle collisions, injuries, and fatalities in Alameda through bicycle safety education.
