Bike lane as parking
The bike lane in front of Miami City Hall was a popular place for car parking this morning. Spots next to Dinner Key Auditorium were full, so people with city business couldn't go there. Had they driven another half a block past the marine store, they'd have found ample space in a city lot. Ironically, the City Commission was issuing a proclamation of March as the city's official Bike Month. It's nice to have bicycling recognized that way, but having bike facilities observed and enforced might accomplish more.
