    The Stupidest Bike Lane

    The Stupidest Bike Lane

    A bike lane that goes less than a city block in Westwood. That would make me feel a lot safer in L.A.

    California DOT distinguishes types of bike lanes as Class I, II, or III.

    I = completely separated from the roadway, like a MUP.
    II = stripe on the road with signage saying "bike lane"
    III = no special bike accomodations but signage for "bike route"

    I think a city gets a little extra money from the state for street construction and maintenance if they have a class II bike lane so that might be why this one-block lane is there... money.

    This kind of stuff is pretty common out here in the suburbs. Often towns will have lanes that dump you into the next town in a place you don't want to be, or lanes that just end.
    Such is life
    Around here the trails just end, but you find them picking up around the corner, down a block.

    I should video some for this guy.

    That's nothing. In Melbourne, FL, there's a bike lane that's only 50 feet long.

    Might be the stupidest in the US, but not in the world.

    There's at least one that's less than a quarter the length of the one in the video in Elk Grove.
