Description

Hi Cambridge, it's Ian, are you listening?

Once again there are trucks parking in the bicycle lane on Broadway between Hampshire St and Galileo Galilei Way. I've attached a picture of the truck showing the license plate, as well as the back of a sign that says:

TOW ZONE
NO
STOPPING
ANY TIME

I think the sign is pretty clear, no stopping means no stopping, right? But the trucks are stopping and obstructing traffic. So let's take some action. I'd like to either see some bollards put up to prevent trucks from stopping here, or I'd like to see you removing the bike lane striping and put a "LOADING ZONE" sign in so that everyone is aware that this is a legal loading zone. I'd prefer bollards, but let's be real here, if you'd rather this stretch of road be a loading zone that's fine, just mark it as such so I expect to have to fight for my life while biking through this critical connector to Kendall Square.

I don't want a generic "This is being looked into" response. I'd like to talk to someone about what we can do to take some serious action here. If you're interested in bollards but not convinced they'll help let's trial it with orange traffic cones for a week.
