BOARD/COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION Urban Transportation Commission Recommendation Number 20220607-002: Bike Lane Blockage Program WHEREAS, creating a physical and cultural environment in which safe bicycle riding is critical to a successful transportation system. To wit, ● Widespread bicycle use is a critical component in the effort to reach the Austin Strategic Mobility ● Plan goal of 50/50 transit mode share In multiple studies and surveys, a key reason people give for not choosing to bicycle more often is the real and perceived dangers created by a lack of safe routes ● Separated, protected, and obstruction-free bike lanes are the number one method to ensure the safety of users of bicycles, scooters, and other active transportation methods ● The 10s of million of dollars allocated by 2020’s Prop B active transportation bond is effectively ● Getting more people on bikes more regularly effectively increases road capacity, reduces pollution, wasted when bike lanes are blocked fights climate change, and increases joy WHEREAS, the city of Austin and other cities already use both citizen input and photo evidence to initiate citations, including such examples as ● Austin Transportation, in partnership with Austin Police Department, trains volunteers to issue citations and warnings for illegally parked vehicles in designated accessible parking spaces ○ https://www.austintexas.gov/department/accessible-parking-enforcement-program ● New York City’s successful Clean Air/Idling Truck program ○ https://jalopnik.com/bounty-hunters-seek-out-idling-trucks-in-nyc-for-a-cut-1848679863 ○ https://www.cnbc.com/2022/03/31/make-87point50-in-3-minutes-by-reporting-idling- ○ https://legistar.council.nyc.gov/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=4699482&GUID=0D2AA2FF- trucks-in-new-york-city.html ● Additional Legislative examples 6328-4781-ABF1-8D789CB876A8 ● Unmanned speed cameras ● Unmanned red light cameras ● Unmanned school bus camera WHEREAS, there are multiple desirable and attainable outcomes from this program, including ● Fewer obstructed bike lanes, resulting in safer, more usable bike lanes, which encourages more widespread use of bike lanes by ordinary everyday bicycle and other micro-mobility users ● Additional bike lane users reduces overall congestion by taking some drivers off the road, and getting the city closer to its ASMP mode-share goals ● A new revenue stream for the city ● A more invested community of citizens, as they can both benefit from and understand how to improve their bicycling infrastructure THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Urban Transportation Commission recommends the Mobility Committee and Council members, in order to make citations for blocking a bike lane a more effective and functional disincentive, pursue the follow actions: ● ● ● to alter any relevant ordinances requiring a posted sign explicitly making parking in the bike lane a citable offense, and instead to create as a default …
