Bikes in Boston Bike Lanes
In September Nathan Rosenquist released an interactive map which allows New Yorkers to submit photographs of cars parked illegally in bike lanes. carsinbikelanes.nyc displays the photos of these reported vehicles on an interactive map. It also prominently displays the licence plates of the obstructive cars.
As well as creating this interactive car-shaming map of New York Nathan also open-sourced the code behind the project on GitHub.
Cars in Bike Lanes Boston has used Nathan's code to create a similar map fo Boston cyclists. This means that cyclists in Boston can now submit details and photographs of offending vehicles to their own interactive map of cars illegally obstructing bike lanes.
