Donut Emergency: Cop Parked in Crosswalk and Bike Lane

This photo comes from a recent entry on MyBikeLane.com. Jessica writes:

Coming home this evening from work on my bike, i saw 2 officers pull up to the curb, successfully parking in a crosswalk AND bike lane. I stopped and asked "Officer... do you really need to park in the crosswalk AND bike lane?" To which he replied, "to order food- yes."

After taking a few pictures, i went into the diner and asked, "Officer- is this the example you want to set for the citizens of New York? You know you put my life in danger when you park in a bike lane."

They continued to ignore me.

*Please note all the available parking
