By all means double park in the traffic lane! It's OK to force cyclists into traffic, but a big no-no to force cars to do it? WTF.
There are over 50,000 miles of streets in Chicago, and less than 200 miles of bike lanes. That's less than 0.3% of the pavement reserved for cyclists. Anyone who thinks we aren't already sharing the road is smoking crack.
Sadly, it's a**hats that park in the bike lanes that are forcing the city to spend millions to separate the bike lanes. If the dipsh*t drivers would respect the painted lines, there would be no need for concrete. Sigh.
Congrats to Bike Lane Uprising on their 1st anniversary. Over 4000 violations logged, and hundreds of submitters.
It's nice to see that the fine for stopping in a bike lane has been increased to $300 in the central business district. Now, if they'll start writing more tickets.....
