    This might be an old story (2 weeks) but the Examiner had an article about businesses complaining that the new Ocean Avenue bike lanes were hurting sales.

    It should be noted that 2 of those spaces were already “Tow-Away” zones. The liquor store used those as unmetered parking. Note that the liquor store owner was the lead complaintant.
