People are continuing to park in the bike lane on Edgewood Avenue, despite the signs and enforcement efforts.
This creates a safety hazard for people on bikes, who are forced to jut out into traffic to go around the parked vehicles. Often there are available spaces across the street or nearby.
Edgewood may be the hardest-working street in Atlanta right now, between streetcar tracks, construction, local businesses, and people on foot and on bike. People across Atlanta are biking more these days for so many reasons - to get to work while getting a workout, to visit friends, and to shop and dine at local businesses.
Remember, just because you're on a bike does not make you exempt - be part of the solution by obeying all traffic signals. Every time you run a red light it aggravates drivers and makes us all a little less safe.
To report a parking violation, please call Park Atlanta at 404-750-2263. There should be a supervisor on call.
