A day in the life of a bike commuter, looking at cars that take over the bike/bus only lanes. I'm an advocate of the "Share the Road" program and would like to see police enforcement of the cars illegally driving in the bike/bus lanes.

Monday 11/6--Police cruising along in bike lane
Here is a nice picture of a police officer taking advantage of the bike lane for no reason, except perhaps "because he can."
And in a little bit, I'll have a video of cars passing me on the right-hand side of the bike lane. I'm going to apologize in advance because it's very shaky.
I'm a regional land use planner for Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning. I used to work for the US Department of Transportation. I finished the Peace Corps in Guatemala in 2003, where I worked in a municipal planning office. I like to have fun and do good things for the world...but for me, it's all a matter of striking the right balance.
