"That's a special person, and that's their personal left-turn lane. I see this often on Jackson between Desplaines and Jefferson, though less often since the lane markings were re-done. When it happens, it's *multiple* special people."

"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>"

""Verdammte radfahrer" = "damn cyclists" "Brems" = "brake" "Autoweg" = "motorway" Great cartoon!"

"A regular "bumper crop"! ;-) Where's the law enforcement? The only time I ever see the police is when they are the ones illegally parked in the bike lanes. :-("

"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?
"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. <_<"

"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."

"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…"

"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…"
