"Bro in a black Ram 1500 was partially blocking the bike lane on Elston, in the viaduct, coming up on Ashland, and I bumped up against him as I passed. He slowed as he passed me after the Cortland and told me not to touch cars, then asked how I would…"

Cheryl replied to ChiBikeGeek's discussion Bobby Cann Updates: Ryne San Hamel Pleads Guilty, Receives 10 Days in Jail
""But the BAC 1.5 is what it is no matter if he showed no signs of being drunk. That probably means he is an alcoholic which isn't surprising given his history of driving while intoxicated." Agree. This is deeply troubling to me. It…"

"These geniuses were in the Elston bike lane this morning, within spitting distance of two massive parking lots. I guess this was more convenient for them."

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

"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."
