Santa Fe is moving forward with a plan to add sharrows to 13 streets, you can read more at the link following below. Check out the spiffy picture if you haven't seen one before.
I saw the sharrows last time I visited Santa Fe. Didn't know what they were called or what exactly they were for. I did take the lane on those streets and didn't have any issues. Seeing a stenciled bicycle in the middle of the frickin' lane just begs you to take it.
The article states that sharrows are in common use in San Francisco, anybody else have them in their city? Any opinions on how effective they really are?
