Despite it's recently gained reputation to the contrary, New York can be a hostile place for cyclists. Our city of nearly 8.5 million people has opted for a network of painted on-street lanes instead of protected and permanent alternatives to support our growing cycling demand. Thus poor enforcement, driver indifference and cultural hostility frequently combine to create one of our most familiar and dangerous indignities: The car, in the bike lane. Inspired by the apparently defunct getoffmybikelane.com, this site exists to document that indignity.

This site is not a method of legal recourse or replacement for a 311 complaint, and is meant only as a channel for advocacy and catharsis. All submissions are reviewed before posting, so please don't bother including any particularly harsh language, defamation or any sort or personal information beyond pictures of cars, in bike lanes. Thanks.
