Seen & Heard: FedEx Blocking Bike Lanes

FedEx truck blocking bike lane••• From Douglas: “Not sure if this is your purview at all, but thought I’d share the history of a conversation that I’ve been having with our friends at FedEx since November, when I first brought to their attention the problem of their drivers putting our neighbors in danger by habitually blocking the W. Broadway bike lane. Please let me know if I can provide any more info or if you know of anyone else who is as dead set on fixing this as I am.”

••• From Community Board 1: “On Tuesday, February 4 from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m., the owners of the Denny’s opening at 150 Nassau St will be hosting a meet and greet/information session to answer any questions and address concerns about the establishment and liquor license up for review at CB1’s Seaport/Civic Center Committee on Tuesday, February 18 at 6:00 p.m.  It will be an open session,  anyone is free to come and go between 6 and 8:30 p.m. If you are planning on attending, please RSVP to” UPDATE: “This event will be held at the Irish American at 17 John Street, not at 150 Nassau.”

  1. Yes, Douglas, FedEx and other delivery services seem to completely ignore the existence of bike lanes and this does render passage down West Broadway more hazardous for cyclists. I have suffered from this and would be glad to join you in drawing the attention of FedEx et al to this.

  2. The other thing that makes bike lanes so hazardous are bikers. Why are they so angry? Lane rage.

  3. I would like to say I have seen this biker he is on his citibike riding like a mad man and racing very fast in the bike lane. I have seen this guy use vulgar language at the drivers which is not called and very loudly i should add that he
    needs to understand sometimes people are doing there jobs.
