  •  You know maybe the bike lane should be in the (0+ / 0-)

    middle and not on the right.  Would that make travel safer, not sure.

    •  Well, I doubt any cars in the right lane (1+ / 0-)

      would allow bikes to merge in and turn right.

    •  I've been in one of those... (1+ / 0-)

      middle of the road bike lane, 2 lanes of auto traffic on each side - drivers turning left don't glance over their left shoulders before turning, so it's just freaky from a whole different direction.

      There are cases actually, where the put in a right-hand turn lane, and then they stripe the bike-lane, for that part only, right in the middle of the right hand turn lane and the next lane (the one going straight).

      That's okay, but it also has its problems. For example,  the bike has to manuever to merge left to stay in the bike lane.

      And another problem is if cars switch between the straight lane and the right hand turn lane illegally by crossing over the solid white line (and the bike lane)
