How to Park Without Blocking the Arapahoe Street Bike Lane: A Guide

To help people — particularly drivers — get used to the new parking-protected bike lane on Arapahoe Street, Denver Public Works put on a “parking demo” for the media. It was pretty cheesy, but the idea was to show people how to park a car, unload it, and walk across the bike lane safely to get to the sidewalk.

People in other American cities have quickly figured out how to parallel park this way. It’s simple stuff, but as Denver’s streets get better, change can be hard for some. DPW also included a step-by-step flyer [PDF], just in case the visual isn’t enough.

    The worst are folks with entitlement cards. You know the ones..the blue thing they hang from their mirror? Apparently that guarantees you the right to park up next to the curb in the bike lane.
