Atlanta drivers could face $100 fine for parking in bike lanes

Atlanta officials hope to solve the problem with a new $100 fine for drivers parking, stopping or driving in bike lanes. Those driving tractor-trailers could face a $1,000 fine.

The proposed fine was approved in the public safety and transportation committee meetings this week. The Atlanta City Council will vote on the item Monday.

Drivers who park in bike lanes now are fined $25 under the “improper use of lane” law.
