Sharrows

Photo removed due to cranky comment below that didn’t bother to give me a url to linkback for credit. So the photo, which was put here to help everyone, especially LA cyclists, is removed because I just want everyone to be happy no matter how much they hate me. Sigh, I’m used to it. However, here’s a google image page of sharrows if you want to see them.
“An arrow that reminds cars that bicyclists also use the road and cars should share the road with cyclists.”
Urban Dictionary

“The sharrows were installed alongside newly approved (by the California MUTCD) ‘Bicyclists May Use Full Lane’ signs. Our group recently received an order of these signs and those accompanying the sharrows along the Riverside Dr. Bridge construction site were an ideal place to try them out first. While these signs have been erected as a temporary measure, the city also will soon be complimenting existing sharrowed routes throughout the city with the same “Bicyclists May Use Full Lane” signs.”

Y’know I saw those a few days ago and had no idea what they meant. Cyclists, I love you, but please pedal fast at peak hours in the one lane part of the bridge, thanks.

PS. Based on Severin’s comment below about not pressuring cyclists, all I can say is LA is a tough town to ride a bike in and I salute all the cyclists that do.

    If you take a picture and edit it as you did above, please give credit to the original source. Also, be aware it’s a construction zone, speeds should be reduced here anyway for safety reasons, please do not pressure cyclists to speed up or to get out of the way.

    Not cranky, if you click image on the blog it links to a flickr account where the image’s HTML can be copied and posted on other blogs such as this one. No need to remove it, you can simply add a caption of where you got it from. The image is quite helpful, I encourage you to put it back up, just add a caption. No hate here :)
