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. 

So true!

Angela Park has been identified as the 39 year old cyclist who was killed yesterday when a driver of Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) @LRSrecycles ran her over in Greektown. We are beyond sad. Beyond angry. Beyond wanting thoughts & prayers. We want ACTION. We want RESOLUTION. We want PREVENTION.

This company is a KNOWN BIKE LANE OFFENDER. Please ensure all violations you have on your phones & cameras involving Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) make their way to our database ASAP.

They have illustrated a culture of anti-cycling & risk for a long time. They're documented multiple times illegally using bike lanes for parking & housing dumpsters for months on end in bike lanes. Please report any additional violations to our database at

The more submissions we have to illustrate their disregard for safety the better.

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.....
