Parking in Bike Lanes
Steven asked: Our county has adopted Complete Streets and will be installing dedicated bike lanes on a street near my home. The county reduced the travel lane sizes to install bike lanes. It is a four-lane street. There is a daycare that is using the street for drop off and pickup. The area where they park will now be a bike lane. What is the law about temporary parking and bike lanes? At certain times there can be 10 cars parked in the street, future bike lane.
It sounds like their standing is longer than momentarily, so they will have to find somewhere else to park.
