Before calling the business, I'd leave a polite note on the windshield
saying something like:
This is a bike lane. I commute by bicycle and it's hard to get around
your car safely. Could you kindly park in the lot?
Thanks so much,
If the cars belong to healthcare workers, I would think that they'd
have a sense of safety and not park there after reading the note.
