Bill proposes fining Boston drivers stopped in bike lanes

BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston drivers could soon be facing fines for stopping in bike lanes.

Lawmakers have delivered the bill to Governor Charlie Baker, which would fine drivers $50.

The bill is, in part, a response to the increasing use of bicycles for exercise and commuting, as well as the recurrence of bicycle-car crashes.
