Ottawa, Gatineau traffic updates for Sept. 14 - Ottawa - CBC News

By Doug Hempstead, CBC News Ottawa, September 14, 2017

(...)Speaking of bikes, I got a long note from Renee, who bikes to work and was happy to hear police were out enforcing bike boxes in Sandy Hill.

(...)"I love it and I plan to stick to it as my main method of transportation on a permanent basis. But I will say that I find it amazing how often cyclists can be put at risk of injury (or worse). Some of my biggest pet peeves are: Motorists who park in designated bike lanes. I come across this just about every day. They would never think to park in the middle of the road, and yet they think nothing of parking in the middle of the cyclists' equivalent. I assume it is illegal, and yet I even see City of Ottawa vehicles doing it!
