It looks like the city might be installing a bike lane on a route I use daily. If they do though, I'm probably going to protest it. First of all, it's looks like they're going to make it far too narrow, and they're going to put a lane of traffic right up next to it. It's also in a spot thats not terrible as far as traffic goes, so it's really unnecessary.
This is actually the same as all the other lanes they've installed here. Some of them are almost invisible because they're so far into the gutter that they're covered in debris. At the same time, they're next to a narrower than normal traffic lane. All it does is encourage people to pass without changing lanes, while not providing any of the separation to allow that safely.
Has anybody else had to deal with poorly designed lanes? Have you ever been pulled over for not using them?
