The Chainlink

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:
#BikeLaneShaming

#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. ;-)

Is there a way to mute a post?  Seeing a 1000 pictures of cars parked in bike lanes downtown is a bit old. We are all cyclists and see this everyday.  This isn’t adding anything to this site.

Pretty sure the request was asking if there was a way to mute a "particular poster," rather than the entire thread. Unfortunately, I don' think that's possible, but would be a feature many who occasionally pop into this thread would appreciate, I'm sure.
