My regular commute takes me down Lake Washington Blvd. from Bellevue into Renton. During that ride, I pass across a number of T intersections, always going across the top of the T when heading South. I noticed something yesterday and this morning and was wondering if it meant anything.
The striping on the road on the side with the top of the T stops at the bike lane. That is, when riding north on the street, the stop line for the intersection goes all the way through the bike lane. Going south, it does not. Does this mean that I don't have to stop for those intersections?
I noticed the same thing going down Park, near the Boeing plant. The roads that are T intersections do not have stop lines into the bike lane.
This seems intentional. Thoughts?
