Good Bike Infrastructure = Safer Streets for Everybody
Here's another video from our prolific friend Clarence Eckerson. It's about a clever piece of bike infrastructure that the San Francisco Department of Transportation added to the 'Wiggle' bike route. It's composed of a green bike box where bikes can wait to cross an intersection, and this sets them up for a dedicated left-hand turn lane that keeps them safe. This might be sound a bit confusing, but check out the video above and it's going to be clear how it works. Let's hope this spreads quickly! Via StreetFilms.
