Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"No, he's a seriously entitled jerk and direct interaction has not gone well. I have called 911 as I also hope those calls are logged."
Tuesday
Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"No, there is not a day care center there, only businesses and an apartment building. It's one guy dropping off his kid to his parents or friends. He's a real jerk and followed me one time to scream at me about why he can park in the bike…"

Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"This guy parks in the bike lane near 4850 N. Elston several mornings each week, dropping his kid off. Today he was not only in the bike lane but next to an open, legal spot.  As I took the picture and reported the car in the bike lane, the guy…"

Cheryl replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"This dude screamed "BEHIND! BEHIND!" at me at a red light and was clearly pissed that I didn't move over (into another cyclist) from where I was stopping to let him blow the light. He obviously has anger issues and is a…"

Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"I hope the bicyclist involved is okay.  Sadly unsurprised by this. Drivers frequently turn across traffic lanes when the cars leave a gap for them to do so, without looking for other traffic - bikes - that may still be moving into the path of…"

Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Yes, I've noticed that. I'm trying to recall whether it's right at 695 N. Milwaukee, where there was a recent fire, or immediately north of there. Either way, you're right - there is no signage indicating "Bike lane closed…"

Cheryl replied to Ed Fuhrmann's discussion New Bike Rack at ALDI. Should we be thankful... or insulted?
"Yay!!!!"

Cheryl replied to Ed Fuhrmann's discussion New Bike Rack at ALDI. Should we be thankful... or insulted?
"I have put in a request, although not checked the status.  I was surprised that the request I put in for a rack near Capone's was rejected for lack of sidewalk space."

Cheryl replied to Gene Tenner's discussion How Chicago cab drivers were relieved of liability for dooring crashes
"There is a place on the Uber site to report "dangerous driving" but it is ridiculously difficult to find, and in fact I was unable to find it again or I would share it.  Agree they ought to be treated more like other taxis, including…"

Cheryl replied to Ed Fuhrmann's discussion New Bike Rack at ALDI. Should we be thankful... or insulted?
"At least there is a rack. The last time I visited the Aldi on Montrose at Western and the one on Milwaukee north of North, neither had bike racks. Both newly remodeled, both visited by lots of bicyclists."
