Cars, Trucks Spotted Using Laguna Lake Highway's Bike Lane
This is why we can't have nice things. The 5.8-kilometer Protected Bike Lane beside the Laguna Lake Highway was officially inaugurated only four days ago--on February 7 last Thursday to be exact--and yet two days later, on February 9, some cars and trucks have already been seen using it.
In a post on the Pinoy MTB--Filipino Mountain Bikers' Facebook page last February 9, member Rodel Lopez reported seeing vehicles of different types using the two-lane bike lane, from tricycles to ten-wheeler trucks based on the photos that accompanied the post.
According to Lopez, he had just come from a bike ride when he decided to try the newly-opened Laguna Lake Highway Bike Lane. When he chanced upon the driver of one of the vehicles on the bike lane, he pointed to the driver that he (the driver and his vehicle) was on the lane that's supposed to be exclusively for bicycles. The driver's reply? That there were no bikes using the lane.
