An outraged citizen files a 311 complaint about the road markings along the Arborway and Centre Street that went in this week as contractors get ready to place bollards for a new bike lane to replace one of the four current car lanes between Parkman Drive and the Arborway rotary.
Thanks for adding a lane that will only be used by ATVs and dirt bikes, but can we be practical and switch it back to two lanes so us blue collar workers can actually get home?"
Ed. note: This is the stretch of road with two main lanes and two carriage-lane lanes in each direction.
Another citizen is also outraged, but at the first outraged citizen, and so files a 311 reply - under the topic heading of "rodent sighting:"
Hey asshole, take the train or ride a bike. Boston isn't built for that many cars anyway so you should be happy about this.
Meanwhile, a third outraged citizen files a 311 complaint about the situation downstream from Jamaica Pond, along Chestnut Street near Perkins Street, just before the mini-rotary at the Brookline line:
10 cars and trucks parked in bike lane. Please start enforcing bike lanes with tickets and tows.
