Guerrila bike lanes and arrests

Some people painting guerrilla bike lanes on Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn have apparently been arrested :

According to tipsters, the neighborhood’s volunteer community watch group responded to reports at around 4 am that two men were using spraypaint to recreate a section of the bike lane, which the Department of Transportation controversially removed from a 14-block stretch of Bedford Avenue last week. Police arrived at the corner of Bedford Avenue and Rutledge Street and arrested two suspects, sources said.

    If one of the booked individuals isn't named Yehuda Moon, I want my money back.

    I've wanted to do this in Antioch where the city REMOVED a bike lane… but I don't have the equipment, cash or guts to pull it off.

    @Curtis – I too have been tempted and like you I'm too chicken. So I just incite others to do the dirty work :-/
