Share your pics, videos, streets, stories of what you find in the bike lane of the non-bike variety that has an impact on your ride and/or your safety. I've decided to keep it a little more open ended - cars, snow, buses, garbage, cabs, etc. If they shouldn't be in the bike lane, go ahead and add it to this thread. Please be safe if you are taking pics or video! :-)
My hope is that we can collectively build some evidence of what we see when riding in the city with the overall hope of better enforcement of "bikes only" and improving maintenance.
Update: More Hashtags to Capture Vehicles in the Bike Lane
With popular hashtags:
#LaneSpreading (Chicago Bike Selling)
#ClearTheWay (ActiveTrans), there are many options to capture violations.
We think you should use ALL of them AND post your photos on The Chainlink. ;-)
No pictures, as I was in my car, but was heading south on US41 yesterday morning and was around 75th or 76th Streets and saw a car, empty but with its hazard lights flashing, sitting squarely in the bike lane and the first thought was this thread and I said to myself, 'why is that in the bike lane?' It gave me a chuckle. :~)
Thanks, I've been filing 311 reports on the car washes as well.
This guy is a regular offender. Time for a passive-aggressive note on his windscreen?
