Starting this month, you could get cited for parking your car in a bike lane in Albuquerque. 

It comes in response to bicyclists’ complaints that the city’s parking rules were unclear and too many people were parking in bike lanes without being penalized. 

So the city council passed a resolution earlier his year, adding bike lanes to the specific list of places you’re not allowed to stop your car. 

Starting on Dec. 19, Albuquerque Police will start giving out warning citations. On Feb. 1, drivers can be fined.
