Hollis bike lane

Posted on Fri, Jun 3, 2016 at 4:00 AM

I have been biking the full extent of the Hollis street bike lane several times a week around noontime and at the end of my work day; there are always vehicles parked in the lane and I counted 10 vehicles in one instance. I don't know if the drivers do not understand that it is illegal to park in the lane, nor is it legal for me to bicycle with the traffic in the street when a bike lane is available, but I feel it to be an incredible danger to myself that I have to swerve into traffic lanes to avoid the cars. I understand the growing pains associated with an infrastructure change that promotes active transportation in this city, but I have not seen any parking enforcement officers on this stretch of road to ticket, or at least warn and educate the drivers, especially those drivers on deliveries. —Dynamic Dan
