Everyone is aware that bike lanes are an issue in Canada and the U.S. Cars constantly drift into the cycling lanes and don’t pay attention to bikes on busy roads; too many people are getting hurt. Therefore, an anonymous cycling activist decided to place toilet plungers along the outside of a bike lane in Wichita, Kansas.
This is stupidly brilliant. Within two weeks of the plungers lining the bike lane, the city made it permanent. Realizing that the bike lane needed an actual physical barrier to protect cyclists from the vehicles near the busy intersection, the city of Wichita installed flexposts in place of the plungers.
This ‘cycling activist’ seriously made a difference! I can’t believe the police actually threatened to give them a ticket for “littering”.
