"Yes, and the same applies to the bollards on at least *one* of the protected bike lanes I can think of... the Jackson Blvd bridge over the Ryan. They were placed a couple months ago and were gone within days. Cars-is-the-bike-lane is a regular…"

"I don't like it when a car driver gives me the right-of-way when I clearly do not have it. I'll put down a foot, and if that doesn't do it I'll act as if I've dropped something. It's not that I don't appreciate the…"

"Last Tuesday I had a guy in a shiny black BMW do a left hook on me as I was crossing the Jackson bike lane over the Ryan. I was able to turn with him, but took advantage of the situation to leave a 2-foot scratch on his driver's door. So…"

"You know that dooring carries a $1,000 fine (for the car driver) don't you? The Municipal Code of Chicago calls this infraction "open door in traffic". You should have called the police. Of course, getting an officer who cares is…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"You could also try the police. There's a city ordinance against parking or standing in a bike lane... this might reasonably apply to anything else that blocks the lane. Stealing, damaging or kicking the sign probably would not be regarded…"

"I'm going to try messaging the ATA again expressing the hope that *this* could be the year when this problem gets resolved. They were talking about a "bikes-only" signal at Halsted to allow bikes to get to the right. That seems a bit…"

Steve Weeks replied to Brendan Kevenides's discussion Please check out video & help us ID driver.
"Surely the police can identify the driver. How is this not possible? BTW, to my best knowledge there is a $1,000 (yes, ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS) fine on the motorist for "Open Door in Traffic". Steve"
