Utterly Routine

Classic Toronto Traffic

This is absolutely, 100% typical. The police don’t even bother ticketing them most of the time.


  1. So, I get why that’s problematic if you’re a biker, but: What the heck else are they supposed to do? I mean, they can’t exactly park in the car lane.

  2. Why is parking in the bike lane any different from parking in another lane?

    Also, car lanes are bike lanes, but bike lanes aren’t car lanes.

  3. They’re neither in the bike lane nor in the car lane: they’re in the rightmost part of the road, which happens to be part of a bike reserved lane. As Mike said — moving vans have to be somewhere. If there is no bike lane, then they’ll be in the rightmost car lane. Now I don’t know if in that case people *do* get tickets in Toronto — over here in .nl I believe the rule is that permits apply only when you block the entire street,not when you’re just blocking a small part. Or at least stay there for hours.

    I think you’ve got that backwards. Bike lanes are parking lots, and car lanes are where you get yelled at to get back in the bike lanes.

  5. I can assure you that whatever tickets they get, they don’t pay.
