A friend of mine, Holly Shulman, sent over this blog, MyBikeLane.com, mostly to comment on restaurants that clog up bike lanes with valet signs and cars waiting for valet service. And she was naming names—particularly Policy DC, which was caught in the act earlier this year.*
But I think the newest post, published on Dec. 3, really captures the most egregious violation here: an official D.C. parking enforcement vehicle is caught blocking the bike lane. Is that illegal? I don’t know. But it sure doesn’t look right. (And for the record, the Department of Public Works manages parking enforcement.)
*Bikers chime in: I’m curious what other restaurants frequently stick their valet signs in the middle of bike lanes?
