Yep, That's a Car Plowing Through the Bike Lane on the Jefferson Boulevard Viaduct

We highlighted the car in the bike lane because the photo was, in a word, shitty. Sorry about that.

This photo, taken from the passenger seat on my way home to Oak Cliff Saturday night, raises a number of questions. Chief among them: How exactly did the car get into the bike lane on the Jefferson Viaduct? There's no auto-accessible entrance on the downtown side, and the spaces between the pylons meant to keep bike riders safe from this sort of thing aren't exactly wide.

The invader continued in the bike lane the entire length of the bridge. After all, it would have been as hard to get out as it, apparently, was to get in. There were no bike riders on the bridge at the time, thank goodness.
