This mornings commute North on Elston included an unusual number
of cars "leap frogging" in and out of the bike lanes.
Just as I lost my cool with yet another driver trapped in the
bike lanes around Irving Park, a Patty Wagon appeared at the following
intersection. I road up, and asked the officers if they would
ticket the driver cutting cyclists off in the bike lane. "No
problem", they replied. They drove into oncoming traffic
with their lights on and instructed the driver (now in the right
turn lane) to stop and turn his car off.
Wow, all I had to do was ask?
