Bike lanes are not for cars
I have a concern with the intersection of 144 Street and 72 Avenue.
When driving south, I have seen on numerous times, cars driving down the bike lane and even on the sidewalk to get to the turning lane.
This is a very common occurrence at this intersection, an intersection that has a convenience store on that corner (with a cedar hedge as a blind spot), a bus stop on that corner and an elementary school a block away.
I am angered, frustrated and scared every time I see it, and honestly it happens about 25 per cent of the time.
At the very least, perhaps installing a couple of parking posts between the bike lane and sidewalk would suffice. At best, perhaps restructuring this road so there is more room for people to get by safely.
