Northbound on 3rd Avenue at 3rd Street, Minnesota license 145 XAL ran a red light. Then Minnesota license AHU 678 parked in the bike lane and crosswalk outside of Rick's Cabaret. I stopped to encourage them to leave the bike lane, and one of the walking gonads that works at Rick's engaged the driver in conversation with the aim of delaying their exit from the bike lane. I exchanged some more words with the barely-sentient bundles of testosterone that throw people out of Rick's, then followed AHU 678 across the street to the southbound bike lane, where they were once again parked. They drove up the bike lane to the limit line and stopped again in the bike lane. Finally, as I approached, they made a right turn and went the fuck away. Then, southbound on 3rd Avenue at 5th Street, Minnesota license 700 WHK ran a red light.
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.
