Lawmakers Pass 50$ Fine For Parking In Bike Lanes

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 05

Don’t know if the governor is going to sign it…but he should.

 

Drivers across the state could be penalized with a ticket of up to $50 for stopping in a bike lane under legislation sent to the governor’s desk on Tuesday, the last day of the biennial session.

State and local officials have increasingly turned portions of roadways into bike lanes, and municipalities have imposed their own fines against drivers who use bike lanes for parking or stopping.

In May 2014, a new bike lane obstruction penalty went into effect in Cambridge, with a $35 charge, according to the city’s website, which says that previously vehicles obstructing bike lanes were ticketed for double-parking or other offenses. Boston also tickets drivers for stopping or parking in a bike lane, according to its website. (via)

I ride through here…every single day, and every single day it sucks.  I can’t wait for this to get better.  Don’t even care if there is crazy construction for a year.  Highways don’t belong in neighborhoods.
