The city has stepped up efforts to deter cars from blocking bike lanes. Cyclists say that blocked lanes force them to merge with vehicular traffic, putting them more at risk.

Obstructed bike lanes have become a daily encounter for cyclists and create a safety hazard. This year, the city is stepping up its enforcement efforts to deter motorists from blocking the lanes. They are adding bike routes to the daily patrol maps for parking enforcement aides. Additionally, the department is examining 311 complaints to better send aides to where the issue persists.
