Blatant Disregard For A Bicycle Lane in Taipei

I was amused to notice this delivery truck parked across a bicycle lane in central Taipei 台北 the other day. Taipei is generally better than other parts of Taiwan when it comes to respecting bicycle lanes—but one will encounter exceptions like this one now and then. I suppose what I find so amusing about this instance is the fact that there’s plenty of room to park anywhere else but the driver just had to take up the middle of the lane.
