Eyes on the Street: Film Team Blocks the Buffered Bike Lane

Following last week's controversy about whether or not film crews can block bike lanes, specifically the green buffered bike lane in Downtown Los Angeles, you would think the film industry would have paid enough attention to try to actually follow the law.  You would be wrong.

Streetsblog contributor Carlos Morales snapped this picture earlier this morning at Spring and 6th Street. While he was shooting, film crew security asked him what he was doing. When he told them, they stationed LAPD officers assigned to the shoot to stand in front of their film set up to direct cyclists in to the buffered zone.

(Update: With more LAPD showing up, along with L.A. Times reporters, and representatives of Film L.A. on the scene, it looks like discussions are beginning on a longer term resolution.  We'll update this piece as more information comes in.)

(Note: Carlos did the photographing and research, Damien did the editorializing.)
