Some things simply work better than others... a cell phone is not always just a cell phone. (or a cigar is not always just a cigar... )
Yes, (and I just know you are going to bring this up) in the strickest sense "a bike lane is just a line on the road..." but how that line is incorporated into the roadway and enhanced by signs and other markings can indeed make the difference between a very successful, thoroughly enjoyable Bike Lane, and one that just meets "specs."
