“Dear PoPville,

While most biking problems involve cars and bikes, mine is different. I’ve noticed a lot of bikers going the wrong way down one way bike lanes. I routinely go out of my way to take one way streets with bike lanes and it drives me crazy to see someone coming at me head on. Tonight there was even a guy with no headlight riding at me so I almost hit him before swerving into traffic.”

I’ve definitely seen this a few times. How do you think the situation can be remedied? MPD enforcement/tickets?
