    The KQED article is syndicated from last week’s Berkeleyside article here:

    http://www.berkeleyside.com/2016/05/12/bike-lane-opens-in-berkeley-by-near-fatal-crash-site-no-charges-filed-yet-against-driver-who-police-say-was-high/

    … which has more information about both the bike lane and the case against the driver who ran over the bicyclists (tl;dr: felony DUI with enhancements).

    I always like a nice bike lane but to be honest I don’t understand this one, which I just had to ride this morning. There’s not a proper right turn merge for the cars at Channing. Instead they have to stop and turn across the bike lane, and in general I also have to say that most of the bicyclists are not stopping. So there’s bound to be conflicts. Why did they design it like that?
