Baltimore councilman seeks increased penalties for parking in bike lanes

Motorists continue to park in the bike lanes

bike lanesAfter hearing an outpouring of complaints from residents, a Baltimore city councilman is pushing a bill to crack down on motorists who park in bike lanes.

In recent years, government agencies have spent millions trying to boost the city’s bicycling infrastructure. Miles of lanes have been installed, including a 2.6-mile stretch of Maryland Avenue. It is called a “cycle track,” in which bicyclists are protected from traffic by a buffer of parked cars.

But motorists continue to park in the lanes. Making it dangerous for bicyclists, who are forced to dart out into traffic, advocates say.
