It's become a very scary situation for bicyclists at Central Oregon Community College as they ride around campus, with people parking in the bike lanes.
Lt. Chris Carney with Bend Police says it's always the worst at the beginning of a term because students are trying to be on time for the first few weeks. "As in years past, what we've done is we've tried to do warnings and the educational thing. it really hasn't been successful. So we are hoping that by talking with you on the radio, but putting things out in the news, that enough people will see it, that they'll actually take care of the problem before we every have to get to the point of issuing citations."
Carney says they actually began issuing some citations already; and the fines could be as high as $110.
The best place to park is near the library and Cascades Hall.
