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."
