Tribune Spotlights Building Tensions Between Drivers, Bikers

Tensions are rising between Chicago drivers and bike riders, according to the Chicago Tribune.

From what could have been a feature story in last month’s edition of Duh! Magazine, the Tribune assigned a reporter to interview drivers and bike riders about the recent boom in protected bike lanes and potential changes to the municipal code which would increase fines for dooring bikers.

Here’s the full Tribune story.
