Cars, delivery trucks, etc. don't respect this section of the bike lane on 1st St NE. There needs to be better enforcement of the bike lane such as police giving tickets. I bike along this stretch of 1st St everyday and it extremely dangerous for cyclists yet I've never seen a police presence here ticketing the many drivers who take regularly park and drive in his bike lane.
Northwest Corner Of 3rd And H Streets Northeast Washington, District of Columbia - Capitol Hill
Because 3rd street is closed to through traffic due to construction, garbage trucks have not been down the street - although they can still enter via I street. They'd just have to back out or make a U-turn. However, pedestrians continue to put trash into the trash receptacle and it is now overflowing.
