They're bike lanes, not parking

Those new bike lanes on Coral Way are already attracting users. Unfortunately, the ones I saw this evening were motorists idling their engines while waiting for someone or running errands.

Until more people get used to this novelty, I guess the police are going to have to remind drivers not to block the lanes. Cyclists should be alert to this; Coral Way is not a good street for avoidance maneuvers.

For a while, let's make an extra effort to use Coral Way. The sight of bikes in the bike lanes is the best reminder of what they are for.

Ha! Funny one JHop, "the police are going to have to remind drivers not to block the lanes"

That's NEVER going to happen, at least not in Miami.
