According to city officials, the crackdown will focus on areas where designated bike lanes on sidewalks exist. Anyone caught riding on sidewalks outside of the designated bike lanes or on any sidewalks that do not have signs allowing use by both pedestrians and cyclists will face a fine of up to 600 N-T. The move is part of the city's efforts to promote a cycling protocol as an urban bike lane network is being constructed and the number of cyclists is increasing. ------------------- Tai-Power lost nearly 7.1-billion N-T in the first half of the year -- pushing the company's accumulated losses to above 100-billion N-T. The state-generator posted the biggest gains of any of the island's state-run companies in 2016 - with a surplus of 39.6-billion N-T. However, it was the only state-run enterprise to not report a profit in the first six months of 2017.
