Blocking Bicycle Lanes
A vehicle parked in a bicycle lane can cause a collision between a traveling cyclist and that vehicle, or expose cyclists to danger by forcing them to swerve into the flow of traffic.
There is currently legislation filed that would make it a ticketable offense to park a motor vehicle in a marked bicycle lane, punishable by a fine of up to $100.

This website is created by the Office of State Senator William N. Brownsberger for the purpose of creating an online dialogue around changes to state law that can improve cycling safety.
Thanks. Got it.
