Share your pics, videos, streets, stories of what you find in the bike lane of the non-bike variety that has an impact on your ride and/or your safety. I've decided to keep it a little more open ended - cars, snow, buses, garbage, cabs, etc. If they shouldn't be in the bike lane, go ahead and add it to this thread. Please be safe if you are taking pics or video! :-)
My hope is that we can collectively build some evidence of what we see when riding in the city with the overall hope of better enforcement of "bikes only" and improving maintenance.
Update: More Hashtags to Capture Vehicles in the Bike Lane
With popular hashtags:
#LaneSpreading (Chicago Bike Selling)
#ClearTheWay (ActiveTrans), there are many options to capture violations.
We think you should use ALL of them AND post your photos on The Chainlink. ;-)
Polk Street between Damen and Ashland is better lately than it was originally, but still has its bad days. Supposedly the campus police are working on it. <fingers crossed>
Who invented the photo captcha? I want to personally punch that stupid son of a b*tch right in the f*cking face. I'm having a game of wits with a god d*mn computer that doesn't know what a bus or traffic light is.
Look at all those squad cars ticketing the red car... oh, wait... :-(
