What are bike lanes?
|August 8, 2013
Bike lanes are sections of road designated for exclusive use by cyclists in the direction of vehicle traffic.
What about safety?
Bike lanes are proven to make the roads safer for all users. All proposed plans would improve safety in the following ways.
• Designate a safe riding zone for cyclists;
• Encourage cars to drive at slower, safer speeds;
• Encourage cyclists to bicycle more predictably;
• Make pedestrians and drivers more aware of cyclists.
Will parking be impacted?
No parking will be removed. Double parking in a bike lane is prohibited.
Will traffic be impacted?
No travel lanes will be removed & traffic will not be impacted by this project.
