For a few months now in Albuquerque, the city has been ticketing people for parking in bike lanes. That’s after the city changed an ordinance so that bike lane stripes count as 'no parking' signage.

Pedestrian fatalities are up all around the United States—and New Mexico is no exception.

Better Burque blogger Scot Key has been following the problem for years, and he talked with KUNM about the reality of these deaths.
