Approx 3pm at Venice Blvd just east of Grand View: Cyclist in the bike lane hit a pedestrian who was feeding the parking meter. Cyclist did not stop to see if the pedestrian was okay. Incident described by the man who was hit:

“Yesterday on 12/12/2017 at around 3 p.m. I was hit by a bicyclist. I was on Venice Blvd off Grand View at 12120 Venice Blvd. It used to be sidewalk, parking and bike lane. Now it is sidewalk, bike lane and parking spaces divided by white pylons. I crossed the bike lane and was checking to see what side of the parking meter the money goes in, the curb side or the building side. The bicyclist who was in the bike lane and too close to the curb hit my right leg and ankle with his wheel and knee. He didn't even stop. He just yelled "sorry." I am okay but sore. I think he might have tried to avoid hitting someone or something else. The bike lanes are unsafe because drivers walk across them to get from their cars to the sidewalk and vice versa.”
