Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Go you UIC Police!! I work on campus, and I've only seen that happen once... but the bike lanes are *mostly* clear."

"I will admit it has occurred to me to carry a squeeze bottle of catsup for people like that. I resist though. ;-)"

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Whenever I get buzzed by a car, it seems like it's almost always an expensive car like a BMW, Mercedes, Cadillac... or a rusty death-mobile."

"Hey, but he's driving a Merced... he's entitled!"

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Lately they've been pretty good about not parking in the bike lane on Jackson in front of the Police Training Academy. But a bike lane *and* a sidewalk is just too tempting I guess. <_<"

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Exactly. Maybe they think it was PhotoShopped. <_< Seems inconsistent: they'll send you a ticket based on a red-light camera, but won't pursue something more egregious like this. Go figure."

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Tonight there were *two* buses there. Maybe this is related to the anticipated verdict in the Laquan McDonald case, so I'll give them a pass. Next week: no more Mr. NiceGuy."

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"CTA bus parked in Jackson Blvd. bike lane 1300 W. Jackson at 5:15 PM. Flashers on, driver chilling behind wheel. Sign in front window: "ACADEMY PRESERVICE SGT". There was plenty of space for the bus to park next to the curb. 311 report…"

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Depressing, isn't it? I'm having a regular (read: "every day") problem in the bike lane on Jackson Blvd between Desplaines and Jefferson. Jackson is one-way eastbound and Jefferson is one-way northbound. Drivers of cars on…"

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Good question! All I can think of is it's to keep the police from parking in front of the academy. Oh, wait..."
Sep 11
Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"I'll see what happens. I have noticed an apparent decrease in lane obstruction in front of the academy, but it's still happening to me a couple times a week at least. While I was there, a JimmyJohns delivery cyclist rode up and we chatted.…"

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"I was heading to Union Station this evening, along the Jackson Blvd bike lane. In front of the CPD Training and Education Academy there was an unoccupied squad car parked in the lane. Traffic in the adjacent lane was fairly heavy, so I stopped. As I…"

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Yikes! You should have an air horn. :-) I gave a police officer a "ticket" today. I happened to be carrying a copy of MCC 9-40-060 in my pocket when I came upon a squad car parked in the bike lane in front of the police academy on Jackson.…"

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"I was on my way to work this morning and came apon a person getting out of a car parked in the bike lane. I heard the beep indicating the doors were locked meaning this wasn't a quick drop-off. I said "You know you can be towed if you park…"
Aug 28
Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"I'm having a low moment here. Has anyone ever (*ever*) seen a bike lane obstruction handled by the police? Every goddamned day I see cars parked in my lane. I have photographed them, reported them to 311 and Bike Lane Uprising. I've…"

Steve Weeks replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Then how is it that I *never* see cars getting ticketed? If there's that much money being collected you'd think the police would be on the low-hanging fruit like flies on... ripe bananas."
