A follow up of the Knight street Bridge post
We are at the SB on Ramp from SE Marine Drive to Knight Street Bridge (apriori into Vancouver juridiction), the location is 7800 Knight bridge street according to VPD tickets issued right there…But who should get a ticket?
According to the Vancouver Police Department, the ticket issued will look like below:
Nota: It was no movable sign, at the time the ticket was issued, but a police cruiser was parked exactly the same way. The cops, far to be ashamed to block the bike lane, were explaining it was dangerous to ride on the roadway without an helmet. No argument is necessary in such case…
Indeed it is dangerous (the most dangerous spot in Canada by the way!): Could it be the cyclists fault?
The result of it, in the last 5 years,
- 13,154 helmet ticket issued in the last 5 years 
- How many ticket, for dangerous obstruction of a bike lane? 
 Is it illegal to deliberately obstruct a bike lane? apparently not in BC!
