  • 3401-3465 West Lake Street Chicago, Illinois - East Garfield Park

    This is so frustrating. I do my part to follow the rules of the road, stop at red lights, and yield the way at stop signs when it's not my turn to go. But after counting 10 cars either driving or parking in protected bike lanes yesterday (6 on Lake St, 1 on Dearborn, and 3 on Kinzie), it made me want to say "F*** it." If they're not going to obey the law, why should I? When I took this photo the driver told me not to and I was like, "This is not a parking spot." She said, "I can park wherever I want." "And I can take a photo." Yes, you can park in front of a fire hydrant if you want. But you should get a ticket.

    Bottom line, CDOT needs to work with the city police to enforce the law and give tickets to cars parking in the bike lane. The lanes have been there long enough for people to realize that they're not for cars.

    I recommend bike cops for the job...
