Bike lane narrowed -- again

Time for gnashing of teeth. The bike lane I take home has been narrowed again.

The original stripe (highlighted in green) was rather close to the curb, but I realise that the street is too narrow to support a real bike lane plus two lanes for cars.

Then, last year or maybe it was two years ago, the stripe was repainted (shown in blue) and it moved in maybe a sixth of the way to the curb. Quite a squeeze.

And now this year (the fresh white paint) it has nibbled away a little more. Not as outrageous as the last striping, but working its way to zeroing out the bike lane at this is one intersection.

I guess you should get a car and quit your one-man protest of the American way! We all need the jobs that you're not supporting by not driving! Like Gas Station attendant, Road-Stripe Painter, Road-Construction Worker, Polititian, Police Man, Gas Company, etc. You're taking the food out of these honest hard-working American's children's mouths! Next you'll start in on Global Warming! The very idea!
