Why is it that people have the right to break the law, just because they're "going to church?" Every Sunday, my family, which includes three school aged children, takes a bike ride through the city. We specifically choose paths with good bike lanes so we can maintain the highest safety possible. But when ever we near a church, the bike lanes suddenly disappear, due to double parking and parking in the meridian by folks attending church services. This puts us in direct danger, having to ride in the "car lane" to go around the parked cars. There are plenty of city lots within walking distance of their houses of worship. Why is it OK to disregard the law on Sunday mornings? Why aren't they getting tickets left and right? If nothing else, it would raise additional revenue for the city. And it might just make people think again about more eco-friendly modes of transportation, like public transit, bikes, or their own two feet.
