In New York’s bike lanes, who are the real scofflaws?

It's true that, at least in New York City, there's probably a scofflaw in any given bike lane at any given time. But chances are high it's not the person on the bicycle.

So observed the staff of Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer when he sent them out to 11 bike lanes in Manhattan to record every single traffic infraction occurring in the lanes. The unscientific results evoke a vivid, chaotic, and very New York streetscape. While reading it, you can almost hear the honking in the background.
