    The bike lanes on the west/southbound side of Washington Street need protective barriers like the east/northbound side has. The southbound lanes also need to be repainted and have signage updated with the correct straight/turn lane indications. "No Right On Red" at Thomas Gangemi Drive, 4th Street, and 2nd Street would also significantly improve the pedestrian and bicycle safety of these intersections.

    Vehicles are routinely using the southbound bike lane and painted median between Newport and 2nd Street as an express right-turn lane, parking lane, and drop-off area, forcing bicycles onto the sidewalk or out into traffic.

    Attached is a photo of a bus using the bike lane as a right turn lane. This evening I took a 66-second video and recorded 10 cars driving, loading, or parking in the bike lane in this 3 block stretch. I also have an 11 minute video showing dozens of incidents including 2 near-misses with bicycles.
