Police chief: 'We've quadrupled the tickets issued for blocking bike lanes'

One enormously significant dimension to the bike policing issue and transportation in general is the sensitivity to space. With more and more people traveling in different ways, we need to make sure everyone can travel safety. Bikes, pedestrians, drivers, taxicabs, buses ... they're all out there. And increasingly we've placed significant value on public space like bike lanes and crosswalks, which exist to protect commuters.

"The bike lanes are a little bit tricky for both drivers and the bicyclist," Chief Lanier told WTOP and WJLA reporter Mark Segraves during the live chat. "We've quadrupled the number of tickets we've issued for people who block bike lanes."

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
