HALIFAX – Crews were busy putting up “No Parking” signs along the Hollis Street bike lane on Tuesday.
More than 300 parking tickets have been issued to vehicles parked in the bike lane since September 25, according to Tiffany Chase with the city of Halifax.
Until today, the bike lane had “No Stopping” signs instead of signs prohibiting parking.
Confused by the signage, drivers have been parking in the bike lane day and night, earning them parking fines and making it hard for cyclists to navigate the downtown street.
The city says more than two dozen “No Parking” signs are being added to the lane to provide a clear path for cyclists, and a clear message to drivers that they can’t park in the bike lane.
