  • Re: Roadshow: Drivers Cannot Use Bike Lanes to Pass Left-Turning Vehicles

    Drivers aren’t supposed to do a lot of things. That fact is meaningless unless local PD’s take their job seriously and enforce traffic laws. I see drivers use the bike lane to pass left-turning cars all the time, even IN FRONT of the police.

    Think-tank-tasic!

    Mmmmmm…. Central Subway …. mmmmmm BART to San Jose …. mmmmm whatever you say, masters.

  • The Greater Marin proposed cycletracks. The term “protected bike lane” has no place in the law or on bicycle signage in California. It only invites motorist hostility for those cyclists who choose not to use these facilities.
