    Default Bike Lanes on Crystal Drive

    Rolling south on Crystal Drive this morning, two commercial vehicles were in the bike lane. Click image for larger version.

    An Arlington Police officer rolled up as we watched during Coffee Club and we thought we were going to see enforcement.

    Alas, any enforcement was not evident. 40 minutes later, the vehicles were still in the bike lane.

    What's up with that?

    Perhaps the officer was responding to reports of an errant electronic sign in the street?

    From Friday evening: 3 cars parked in the Crystal City Bike lane, directly next to the "don't park in the bike lane" sign.

    Honestly, unless they add barriers, those bike lanes are just uber/delivery drop off lanes. I wont ride in them.

    They also need to widen the northbound bike lane north of 15th and around the bend onto 12th. It’s like only a foot wide!

    Sign up for the beta How's My Driving app to report violations like these. I'm convinced my efforts helped result in the new bike lane barriers in DC's Banneker Circle.

    I don't think that is a bike lane. At least it is not marked as such.

    I donít think thatís a bike lane either, but I still take it as a challenge to see if I can keep my wheels between the lines as I go around the curve.

    Thatís just a typical day in CC. I see it every day. Restaurant row at lunch time is bad, but itís also bad on the south side where I work. I see cops drive by, and around, the violators all the time.

    Some should put little bike lane stencils between the two lines.
