Enforce Law Against Parking in Bike Lanes in Center City

Center City drivers park in the bike lanes on 13th Street, Spruce Street, and Pine Street every Sunday. There are signs up and down all three of these lanes that read 'No Parking at Any Time". For some reason it has become the norm for drivers to ignore these signs on Sundays. The PPA and Police are also failing to enforce them.

Spruce Street has the only bike lane that heads west through center city.

Pine Street has the only bike lane that heads east through center city.

13th Street has the only bike lane that heads north through center city.

These arterial bike lanes are very important for cyclists that are traveling through downtown Philadelphia. They are rendered completely useless and dangerous when cars park in them and force cyclists to weave in and out. Cars that park in them need to be ticketed, regardless of what day it is. We need to reclaim the bike lane.
