Bike lanes or parking lanes?

TRC marks out bike lanes but allows them to fill with parked vehicles for most of the day, all night and throughout the weekends.

This makes it unsafe for cyclists who either have to move in and out of the traffic, a recognised danger, or continue to ride in the main traffic lane, thus upsetting vehicle drivers and adding to illegal road rage on the part of drivers who are impatient and or unaware.

Toowoomba Police have informed TBUG they have neither the staff nor the inclination to book illegally parked drivers, and TRC parking officers seem to be unaware of the problem.
