"Start Snitchin’"

A DC edition of a website where bike riders photograph the license plates of cars blocking bike lanes has launched. I intend to make a pain of myself submitting photos.

I’m a bit surprised their isn’t more enforcement of this. Given the currently large number of violations, it seems to me that hiring an additional traffic enforcement officer, giving him or her a bike, and having him or her ride around handing out tickets (especially on the busy, frequently violated lanes on E Street, 14th Street, and New Hampshire Aveneue) would be an easy net source of revenue for the city.
