Photo: Police cruiser in the bike lane

photo111I encountered this police officer sitting in the bike lane on Mountain Avenue just north of Roger Road earlier this week.

The position of the cruiser required southbound cyclist to leave the bike lane to get around it.

It’s not clear what the officer was doing parked in the bike lane, but the route is one of the most popular in the city and would force many cyclists out of the bike lane and into traffic.

A time and date-stamped photo of the rear of the TPD car showing the plate and the car number as well as narrative as to time and date would help. How difficult is that?

Sorry. What Red Star meant to say is as follows:


Hey Mike, good job highlighting this kind of thing.  One suggestion I have is to try to get a photo with a date and time stamp on it so you (or we) can make a better case of it to TPD!  Thanks, Red Star
