Parking in our Bike Lanes

Posted By on Sat, Jun 17, 2017 at 12:10 PM

To all the car owners in Halifax who park in Halifax few, precious bike lanes: Please stop.

I  know your excuses: You are just waiting to pick someone up. It is inconvenient for you go around the corner. You didn’t know it was a bike lane. You just need to send one more text.  You pay gas on taxes which somehow entitles you to park wherever you goddamn please.

I don’t know what’s worse: People who park in Halifax’s few bike lanes or the lack of enforcement of not parking in said bike lanes.  It’s a parking violation the city does not seem to take seriously, so the problem persists.

I know a lot of drivers hate cyclists. That is your right. You are allowed to hate us as much as you need to. Have at it. But please don’t park in our bike lanes. Your stupid, oblivious behaviour makes the road more dangerous for everyone. Driving (and parking) is a privilege, not a right. —A Haligonian on Two Wheels
