Drivers still can't grasp that there is a bike lane on 14th Ave.

Drivers appear to be having some trouble understanding what those stick figures mean on the roadway....

DENVER - Finding parking downtown can be challenging.

This is why it was clutch when the city put in new parking on West 14th Avenue. Look at all those happy cars, taking up space.

Oh wait, that's a bike lane.

The city added a bike lane to West 14th Avenue, between Speer Boulevard and Bannock Street, but drivers see space and think, "oh goodie! I'll park there."

To that we say - bollards! That is what you call the white poles that separate the driving lane from the bike lane.

Denver Public Works was dealing with this same problem last month when Next viewer, Ken Classen, snapped a photo of a car parked in the bike lane.

Public Works says it's added more bollards, and painted more symbols, but they're stumped why drivers can't grasp this.
