Motorists continue to park in the 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.
