Had another in a list of similar incidents last night. This was the first one that was explicitly goofy enough to really express my bafflement.
I ride all over the place. I ride in the lane.
The city I am in has a few roads that are marked with sharrows. They could be marked more liberally, but still - they have these big bike chevron sharrows in the road.
Sometimes I have incidences where car drivers express ire with me for being in the road. ALWAYS on a sharrowed road.
Last night I was riding home, on a road that is marked actually rather well with sharrows. A truck lagged behind us for a block or so and honked twice, then pulled around. Some guy leaned out the passenger window as they slooowly passed, and called "That's not a bike lane!" I look down, we're practically right on top of a sharrow, at which we point, and there's another one ahead, to which I also point. "These markings disagree!" Truck drove off.
What gives? Do people just not pay attention to, well, any markings?
