Cycling Commutes 6 and 7: Stay out of my lane!

Here are some things a bike lane is not:

  • extra turning space for when you can't get your big-ass car to turn around and are already blocking all the traffic lanes
  • a place for you to creep around the other cars stopped at the light so you can make your turn quicker
  • a passing lane
  • parking, however temporary your stay
  • a good place to try to flag down a bus/taxi/hooker
  • the starting line for the new "smash the biker" extreme sport you're trying to start
