OC Register: Newport police get souped-up, electric patrol bikes

April 3, 2014

The OC Register reported on the Newport Beach Police Department’s use of Pedego Electric Bikes in their patrols. Writer Nicole Shine describes how the bikes work and all the benefits the NBPD is enjoying from their use.

“Mika said the bike is a natural fit for beach patrols in a town where the population doubles in the summer. The bike can whiz along the boardwalk and pier, places a police car or motorcycle can’t reach. And its speed means a faster response to police calls up and down the Balboa Peninsula.”
