Northbound on 3rd Avenue at 3rd Street, Minnesota license 758 XLP was parked in the bike lane. I called 911 on the offending vehicle; the driver moved during the call and another vehicle, Midwest Star Taxi #5322, Minnesota license 864 KAA, parked in the bike lane, then also moved during the call. Then, Viking Taxi Cab #5208, Minnesota license beginning 322, parked in the bike lane and crosswalk; I had words with the driver. Then, Continental Taxi Cab #3690, Minnesota license 732 NLN parked in the bike lane and crosswalk; I had words with the driver. As I left the intersection to go back home, I spotted a bike cop and stopped to have a conversation with them about the problem outside Rick's Cabaret and the unethical position of the Rick's management as regards the problem.
The Situation at rick's
The 3rd Avenue and 3rd Street bike lanes were built to protect cyclists. Instead, they serve as a parking lot for the valet service at Rick's Cabaret and the hustle economy cars that drop off patrons.
