VIDEO: Close calls on the O’Connor bike lane


Twitter user @frpaul1 uploaded this video to YouTube Tuesday with some close calls on the new O’Connor bike lane, mostly with pedestrians:


“Hopefully the adjustment period to the new bike lane will be short. I really want this to be successful infrastructure,” he wrote in the video description.


The bikeway had only been officially open for a few hours Tuesday when a cyclist was injured after a crash involving a car.

A man in his 30s was taken to hospital with injuries to his ribs and shoulder.

The crash happened when the car made a left turn at Waverly Street.
