For several months now the city has closed Beach Ave. eastbound to allow more separation between cyclists and pedestrians. There are cones and signs everywhere and yet, today I had a car come at me headon in the closed lane.

I mean, in typical Vancouver fashion, there was a piece of paved surface, so it must be for cars. No other explanation is possible (yes, I am being sarcastic here).

Bonus

There are no left hand turns allowed on Burrard & Pacific. Does not deter this "professional driver" though.
