I was doing my training ride on Foothill this morning and as I came close to intersection of Foothill and San Antonio (going towards Mountain View) I almost run into a big yellow sign stating "Share the road". As I pass that sign in a few hundred yards (right where there's a right exit to El Monte) I noticed another sign "Bicycle are allowed use of full lane".
While these sings were placed in good intention, they are creating dangerous conditions right there: the signs cover full bike line side to side forcing us into the heavy traffic.
I just got off the phone with nice lady from Los Altos municipal services and she told me that the city hired some contractors to put these signs. She also said that this is the only place to put them, but they'll try to adjust them in the way to allow some space in the bike line. She took the note and she's going to forward everything to her supervisor. Meanwhile, be careful over there.
