Houston mulls changing weird green parking spots into bike lanes

As a bicyclist, what’s your recourse? For now, not much. Apparently when the bike lanes were built, no one in charge thought that car drivers would overtake the lanes, let alone stop altogether and force cyclists onto the streets they’re trying to avoid.

Soon, however, drivers who park in bike lanes could face a fine. The city is mulling an ordinance to give bike lane enforcement some teeth, including fines and towing.
