BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder officials say that most people who get tickets for camping in Boulder committed no offense other than sleeping with a shelter.

The Daily Camera reports (http://bit.ly/1pdC9ht ) that Boulder prohibits sleeping with any covering, including sleeping bags or blankets, on public land or on private land without permission.

A study released by the University of Denver last month found that Boulder issues more camping tickets than any other city in the state by a large margin.

The Boulder City Council requested an enforcement analysis by the Boulder Municipal Court, which found that 84 percent of people who get camping tickets received no other citation.

Activists have asked the city to stop enforcing the ban and create designated camping spots.
