Adams Street Grand Opening
The bike lane on Adams Street in Brooklyn is open! The Economic Development Corporation deserves kudos for their innovative bike lane design for Adams, the major approach to the Brooklyn Bridge. The red pigment asphalt and belgium blocks used for the lane is a German-style design that increases the lane's prominence on the road and is more effective at channeling traffic than the standard strip of white paint.
Unfortunately, motorists are not yet accustomed to the new design and park illegally in the lane; on top of that, police are slow to ticket the offenders. Help get the cars out of the Adams Street lane: write to the 84th precinct and urge them to enforce the parking regulations along the Adams Street bike lane.
