Cars parked in bike lanes is one of my greatest pet peeves in this city and I’m not sure if drivers understand the message it sends to cyclists. It says, “my convenience is much more important than your safety.”
I’ve posted the poster on Spacing’s Flickr account (you can download the different sized versions by clicking on “All Sizes”) or if you want a high-res version you can grab it from Photobucket. We encourage any and all of you to download it, put it on your blogs and web sites, post it on utility poles near parking spots with bike lanes, or photocopy it and place it on windshields when appropriate. We have left space at the bottom of the poster for you to include your group’s logo or whatever you want to place there (feel free to remove our logo/website entirely if you wish).
The most important thing is to get the message out to the general public on how important it is for cyclists to have an unobstructed path free from the dangers of cars and trucks. We need to communicate better on how cyclists and drivers need to share the road and show respect for one another.

We’d be very happy to supply any organization with a high-resolution version if they have problems downloading it from the above mentioned sites. Please contact us by email.
