This idea of letting people park in bike lanes has good intentions, but bad ramifications
Cycle Toronto also expressed concern that the policy will fuel tensions between cyclists and drivers. Kolb noted that due to the location of the accessible permit, there’s no way a cyclist can tell whether a vehicle has a right to be in the bike lane when approaching from behind.
“There’s already a massive communication problem on our streets and this policy would make it worse,” he said.
Rather than “prioritize the convenience of one vulnerable road user group over the safety of another,” Kolb said Toronto should look to other cities that have found ways for bicycle lanes and accessibility to co-exist.
