    Goofy Sign in Dana Point

    Actually, there is an explanation for what happened, but the photo is still priceless.

    Reminds me of the TWO road construction signs on my local bike lane by my house.

    Irony of that is there is no construction going on. I just about stopped and moved them to the sidewalk tonight.

    From the link above:

    Here's the explanation. The sign belongs to the new median construction contractor who was warning vehicles of the median construction and lane narrowing further up ahead. Coincidentally, the City was also installing new bike lanes on PCH. The bike lane striping subcontractor striped the bike lanes at night and then moved the other contractor's sign to the location you see it. (Not smart.)The City inspector then noticed the sign and had it moved. The good news is that the majority of PCH is now striped in Dana Point. The striping was done in concert with the California Association of Bicycling Organizations who reviewed the plans.

    Excellent!
    Thanks.

    Oh, don't get me started on that! Before they did the striping there was already a wide shoulder which was just fine. Now they've got a narrower bike lane by the gutter, which is going to fill up with debris in no time, and gore striping to the left which is technically illegal for cyclists to use. A net loss for cyclists in my opinion.

    Bike lane debris is a real problem. It makes the cyclist swerve out of the lane.

    Technically, you have to ride in the bike lane if it is provided, but you can signal and move into the normal traffic lane if there are obstacles.
