I have been parking in the County lot for free on weekends when there are no events so there are no attendants. I often get a spot for the train if I go early. It is a shame if they just put an attendant in the lot for the bicyclists. I used to bike the parkway but I wonder how the bikers manage the areas under construction especially going down the hill south of White Plains? I wish bicyclists would obey the laws of our communities. Often bikes use sidewalks in White Plains, go double on 22, drive through lights and rarely ever signal. I think bicycles should be licensed so they can be ticketed. Alex Baldwin did a drive in the wrong direction and got a ticket cause the police knew who he was. It is hard to go after someone on a bike. Motorcycles have to put a foot down to steady their vehicles so bikes can do the same or keep to the bike path where pedestrians have the right of way.
