Better bike signs
Do you even notice the signs?
I really appreciate the intention of the bicycle signs. But I’m not sure drivers get good, firm instruction from them.
Now, my dear wife tells me that the signs remind her to keep her eyes open for bicyclists. That’s great!
But it looks like Utah and other states have tweaked the idea and come up with something better. Check out the photo below that I discovered on Flickr:
Very nice! Now drivers and bicyclist have a shared understanding of their relationship on the road.
My only suggestion is to replace the “Share the Road” portion with something like “Allow 3 Feet.” The words would be easier for drivers to read and “Share the Road” doesn’t add any important information.
Such signs would help the relationship between motorist and cyclist be a little less rocky.
