Thanks in part to Streetsblog's advocacy on the issue, Alderman Reilly never followed through on his threat to ban cycling on the promenade, and the city is looking at ways to accommodate biking. Now the no biking signs need to come down.
While the new advisory focuses on parking in fire lanes and emergency exits, as well as parking placard abuse, the IG's office says it's also interested in sidewalk, crosswalk, and bike lane violations.
An all-electric, free-floating, equity-minded car-share service like Blue LA would be a great replacement. But we should also focus on improving transit and biking so that people rarely need to drive at all.
