87-Year-Old Man Wedges Car Into Bike Lane On Way To DMV

Uhh ...Here is how not to use a bicycle lane: An 87-year-old Marin County man was driving to the Department of Motor Vehicles office when he mistook a narrow concrete-walled bicycle-pedestrian path for Highway 101, and then he just kept driving until his car was wedged so tightly between the cement barriers that a tow truck had to yank the Toyota out. Is this symbolic of the increasingly hostile urban turf wars between automobile drivers and bicyclists?

Maybe! Listen to what this guy said, after all the trouble he caused: "They should block that off, that passageway."

Raymond Pierce will have a mandatory re-evaluation of his driving privileges, under California law. There were no injuries to people, but the bike lane and the old man's pride both suffered terribly.

Actually, they usually do block that sort of thing off. A single concrete post in the middle of it would have been sufficient to stop cars while allowing bikes.

@cory dodt@twitter Ya, dude, that's a '98 Corrolla wagon, no bollard gonna stop that.

Time to add 87-year-old lanes! Keep 'em off the road, nice and safe.

@deepomega They already have them, it's called THE MALL EARLY IN THE MORNING.

@petejayhawk Cemeteries. I was going to go with cemeteries. Or Tea Party rallies. And also airplane food, because what's the deal with that?

@deepomega: They could just put a big "garage sale this way" sign at the entrance.

They should block off the that state of California.

Raymond Pierce will have a mandatory re-evaluation of his driving privileges, liquidy under California law. There were no injuries to people, but the bike lane and the old man's pride both suffered terribly.

There's no way that this old man could have wedged his car in the bike lane, had he been driving a truck. I agree that other companies except the gas companies should researches to find the next best motor, that's why for the best engine blocks I always go to Auto Jocks CT. I read the other day that they are trying to find healthier alternative fuels so they can change the car engines and reduce the pollution. Thumbs up for them!
