Blocked bike lanes increasingly dangerous for cyclists

It is not uncommon for parked cars or idling taxis to force cyclists to swerve into traffic causing bike lanes to become increasingly dangerous for New York cyclists. Blocked bike lanes are more than an inconvenience; they can produce personal injuries and even fatalities. In NYC there have been 17 cyclist fatalities as of August 2016, already surpassing last year's total. As fatalities climb, it is important for cyclists to know that the law is behind them.
