Drivers could be penalized with a ticket of up to $50 for bike lane parking.
State and local officials increasingly turn portions of roadways into bike lanes, and municipalities imposed their own fines against drivers for bike lane parking or stopping.
In May 2014, a new bike lane obstruction penalty took effect in Cambridge, with a $35 charge. Previously vehicles obstructing bike lanes were ticketed for double-parking or other offenses. Boston also tickets drivers for stopping or parking in a bike lane.
