Bike lane violations
It seems both the City of Ottawa and the National Capital Commission are doing their homework with a goal to make Ottawa more bike friendly. An integrated bike lane plan is apparently in the works. However, it will only work if cars stay out of the bike lanes. There is an interesting website called My Bike Lane which shows car after car parked in the bike lanes here in Ottawa. In particular, the bike lane on the Laurier Bridge seems to attract alot of violators. Obviously, without education and ticketing campaigns, the use of bike lanes will still be problematic.
