Space Hogs Where You Live

It’s time for another slide show from the Streetsblog Network. Last time, we asked you for images of bike traffic from around the country. You can see the result here.

This time, we were looking for pictures of cars and other motor vehicles hogging space. And boy, did you deliver. We had dozens of submissions to consider, coming from as far away as Russia.

Here’s a look at what you all are seeing out there on the car-choked streets of America — and the world:

Many thanks to Streetsblog Network members Bicycle Fixation, Portlandize, Project for Public Spaces, Cyclosity, Cyclelicious and Bike San Diego, as well as all the rest of the contributors and everyone who participated.

Here’s your next assignment: We’d like pictures of bikes at work. Cargo bikes, delivery bikes, bikes that get the job done — whatever the job may be. International submissions are welcome.

Send them to me at sarah [at] streetsblog [dot] org, or tag them with "streetsblog" and "workbike" in Flickr.

Keep those pictures coming.
