So this is new to my commute this year. Riding north on St. Nicholas Avenue as it approaches Amsterdam Avenue, the bike lane on the right hand side of the street suddenly shifts to the left hand side of the street accompanied by dotted white lines and becomes a “green” bike lane - photo #1.
The idea is apparently to ride along the green bike lane and then up on to the sidewalk – TICKET #1
From there you cross the street where the bike lane resumes leading off of the sidewalk to the right of the Zebra crossing next to the three pedestrians below – photo #2 and #3. TICKET #2.
Once safely across Amsterdam you ride on to the sidewalk and pick up the bike lane again – photo #4. TICKET #3.
So within the distance of 150 feet or so, it is technically possible to pick up three tickets.
I think whoever planned this bike lane should be issued a summons.
