Driving in Parking Protected Bike Lanes

  • Park in the marked lane between the travel lane and the bike lane in instances where on-street parking is available.

  • Take extra caution and look both ways before turning across the bike lane at intersections, driveways and alleys, especially when the barrier protected bike lane is protected by on-street parking.

  • Remember people biking have the right-of-way at uncontrolled intersections, driveways, and alleys.You can turn across a protected bike lane, but must yield to people riding bicycles.

  • Refrain from driving in a protected bike lane.
