Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"My commute takes me down Elston to Milwaukee to Rover North, and I pass at least 4 car washes, all of which present this same issue. There are 2 car washes between Lawrence and Irving Park on Elston that are particularly bad; I've counted up to…"

Cheryl replied to Caitlin Rafferty's discussion Accident Alert! Diversey and Logan Blvd:
"When riding eastbound on Diversey, I use the sidewalk about 90% of the time. The lanes are such a mess at the right edge that you have to move toward the middle to avoid potholes etc, and drivers tend to drive fast and less cautiously there. "

Cheryl replied to Caitlin Rafferty's discussion Accident Alert! Diversey and Logan Blvd:
"Ugh, how awful. I'm glad you are okay. I've made that same left turn a tone of times and been lucky so far. I'm always worried about being hit from behind, though.  If the police did not file a report, you can go to the police…"

Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion Lake Front Path Expansion - Splitting the Path
"Ugh. I actually dropped my membership in Active Trans due to their promotion of that story. There are enough ways to point out conflict on the path without demonizing one group of users. And I agree, education and public awareness are key; so many…"

"This morning in the southbound Elston bike lane at McGrath Lexus. I called 911 on this one, as well as tweeted McGrath and posted on their Facebook page as this is really inexcusable. "

"Two cars in the southbound Elston bike lane at Blackhawk this morning, both empty, both with flashers on. The further one has an Uber decal in the window. There was no sign of a collision or damage, so it was just a matter of convenience for them. "

"Uber driver in the Kinzie bike lane across from 555 W. Kinzie at 6:25 pm last night. These Uber drivers have gotten really bold about parking in bike lanes to pick up fares, and Uber doesn't apepar to be doing anything about it. "

" Kinzie just east of Orleans on Monday during rush hour (5:40 pm). Dude was in the car, playing with his phone, hazards on, totally oblivious - or not caring - that he was in the bike lane."
