The e-bike program in the Park City and Snyderville area is a hit, but the bikes are not supposed to be used by riders under 18. County Transportation Manager Caroline Rodriguez is asking for parents to be more responsible

Rodriguez pleaded with parents to remember that the e-bikes are not "play-gyms" as she put it, for their teenager or toddlers

"They're really not meant for that, and I know a lot of our other citizens are concerned about children getting hurt. Please, if parents could be responsible for that, it would really help us out."
