It looks like safety wins out this time

On Monday the Cd'A Press ran a story about the new bike lanes that were built on 15th Street in Post Falls. The residents along the new bike corridor were hoping to be allowed to park in the bike lanes during non-school hours, but the Post Falls City Council decided not to allow the parking. This seems to be a growing problem as more and more people take to bicycles as a serious form of transportation. You can read the story here.

(BTW, the photo above is just a generic Google photo. I didn't have a photo of the Post Falls bike lanes.)
