Justice, or Self-Absorbed Bike Lane-Parking Moron 000000022

This massive hunk of steel, LJ 14-4DB, parked on Kongresni Trg on Saturday 26-April, nearly forced me into a head-on collision. When I was done cursing in about a dozen different languages, I noticed the ticket on his windshield.

We’ll call this progress, and a minor victory.

This is GO A8-523, who was obviously in cahoots with fellow Self-Absorbed Bike Lane-parking Moron LJ 91-66F.

On Trzaska Cesta at about 20:15 in Ljubljana, 06-Apr-2009.

In a few select areas, Ljubljana’s bike lanes are quite wide. Wide enough for LJ 91-66F, and other Self-Absorbed Bike Lane-parking Morons like him, to park in quite comfortably.

The best part about this chore is that I don’t really have to go far from home to catch these folks on film.

This is KP J3-183, apparently on a burek break, on Miklosiceva at 8:14pm on 26-Mar.

Little need for sanctimonious excuses for not having posted here in months when I can return with something useful.

Spring has sprung, and with it an aggressive hunt for these SABLPMs. This one, LJ 64 V9D, spotted this afternoon at 5:46 on Miklosiceva, hit close to home because it is close to home.

Busted!

All smiles.

This NY City driver was apparently happy to pose for this pic taken by New York city bike commuter bicyclesonly when he was parked in a bike lane on W. 77th in Manhattan. But who got the last laugh?

We did!

bicyclesonly posted the pic on the New York stop of MyBikeLane.com, and after several complaints to the driver’s employer –apparently said driver had also racked up $2000 in unpaid parking tickets, according to public records– he was fired.

While the NYC hub is the busiest, there are now more than 50 cities affiliated in the quest, including sites for Toronto,  Montreal, Vancouver and Victoria in Canada, Perth and Sydney in Australia, and London.

bikelane_red_sm.jpgI’ve also located Wrong Parking, a similar vigilante outfit in Tallinn, Estonia; and I Parked In A Bike Lane.org, another NYC-based outfit that provides anyone interested with bright red stickers to help remind self-absored bike lane-parking morons that they have indeed Parked in a Bike Lane.

In the meantime, check out the Self-absorbed Bike Lane-Parking Moron photo pool, to see if there’s anyone there you know.
