The publicly available map provides an outlet for cyclists to vent their frustrations and help build a safer city

Although there are a few clearly marked bike lanes in NYC, it is nowhere near an ideal city to bike around in. Cyclists struggle to make even the shortest trips without something huge blocking the cycling lane. Blockages force cyclists to go into traffic, neck-to-neck with cars, until they return to a clear lane. These frustrating conditions make it so cyclists have to deal with a lot in one trip. Now available for these cyclists is Cars In Bike Lanes, a website that hosts a crowdsourced map on which cyclists can document the worst offenders.
