Check out these awesome lanes!  Parked cars on the outside, nice buffer zone, that fresh zing of new thermo plastic.  More of these please.

    Just curious as to what the fine is (if any) for all the whole-asses who will inevitably drive or park in this wonderful bike zone. Anyone know?

    What is the location of these buffered lanes? Also I spy a nice hashed out area that’s begging for giant car-blocking planters full of flowers.

    Winnie, the parking fine is $35 as of May 20. More info here:

    But I guess a motor vehicle “traveling” in a bike lane would be $100?

    I moved out of Cambridge/Massachusetts a number of years ago, but I have some questions:

    Where are these lanes?
    (Is there more than one installed or planned)?

    Do bicyclists have to stop at intersections to avoid motorists turning right?
    Do the parked cars limit (right turning) motorists’ view of bicyclists?
    Do bicyclists have to stop/make 2 stage left turns since they are no longer in position to use regular turn or traffic lanes?

    I’m curious to see it the next time I’m in Mass.

    Absolutely LOVE them from a cyclist point of view !
    However, before more are created, I hope the “decision makers” will look at the following REAL situation which recently happened to me :
    – Taking 2 young kids out of their car seats should not, CANNOT be done on the traffic side of a street (dangerous).
    Especially now that said street is narrower, due to addition of bike lane.
    – I got rudely “barked” at by a cyclist yesterday because my rear car door was open – hence taking room in the buffered bike lane – while I was unbuckling 2 car seats and extracting 2 kids, a time consuming operation.
    If you read this please convey the message to your cyclist friends and whomever is in charge in your City Government. Thank you.
