Get Out of My Bike Lane


It's bad enough there aren't enough bike lanes in the city, but what really gets me going are the cars and trucks parked in spots that are designated as bike lanes. While in the past, little documentation of such an infraction would exist, with the proliferation of blogs and digital cameras bikers can now take such annoyances into their own hands.

Greg, a New Yorker, who claims to have experienced too many close calls in the Big Apple's bike lanes has created a site called MyBikeLane that allows bikers to post photos and comments about bike lane infractions in cities around the world.

The Toronto section of the site is the second most active. It already has 337 posts. There's also a Top Offenders list. So far, a Fedex delivery truck with license plate 1169DX leads the pack with four infractions. Looks like a Purolator truck, Canada Post and a cabbie are also in the running.
