BikeDenver helping crack down on bike lane violators

News Item: 


Denver Bike lane violator in what appears to be a fresh new bike lane!

In the past few years downtown Denver has been working very hard make the streets more bike friendly with added lanes and sharrows however these lanes are useless when drivers act they're not there at all. Drivers can be given a ticket "for impending the right of way" and it will cost them $25. "Most of the violators are service vehicles and for most of those service companies receiving a mild $25 dollar ticket is simply marked up as a cost of doing business", says Maggie Thompson with BikeDenver.

BikeDenver has been working hard at trying to document where most of the violations are happening and why and not just trying to get everyone a ticket. Trying to understand what the root problem is key in this situation because for many violators, $25 a day is nothing. "Do service vehicles have enough loading zones and/or parking for park while doing their business?" ask Maggie. Educating some of the businesses to encourage service cars that come to their business that parking in a bike lane is not desired, studies have shown that active bike lanes even if they are created via the removal of parking spaces does increase business so treating them as a means to get new customers is important.
