The Fixer: Low curbs on Sherbourne St. bike lanes invite drivers to park on them

An enforcement blitz is needed to keep drivers from parking in the new Sherbourne St. bike lanes, a cycling advocacy group says.

With low, rounded curbs that are easy to drive over, parcel trucks and taxis are already stopping in the lanes for passengers and to make deliveries, an invasion of a dedicated space intended only for cyclists.

Unless a lot of $150 tickets are issued for blocking a cycling lane — a new fine authorized by city council just last week — Cycle Toronto says there is no way to stop them.
