Bike riders in Brooklyn are reeling from a ticket blitz.

According to the New York Post, the NYPD issued almost 700 bicycle summonses in February.

That's close to double the number issued last year at the same time.

Police are cracking down on bikers who ignore traffic lights and who ride on the sidewalk or against traffic.
