Online Shaming: New Cops in Bike Lanes Tumblr
Riding a bicycle through NYC is tantamount to crossing a war zone. Between the potholes, cars, and pedestrians, it can be a harrying experience. Particularly when you have to swerve out of the bike path and into the road to avoid a swinging car door or a poorly parked vehicle. As a result, someone has created an NYC Tumblr called Cops In Bike Lanes.
The premise of the site is simple and stated under the website name: “Rules of the City of New York, § 4-09 (E) (9) : ‘It is against the law to park, stand or stop within or otherwise obstruct bike lanes.’”
There are already 11 pages of pictures and some show repeat offenders. Submit your own photo by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
