Sharrows remind motorists to 'share the road'
With regard to page 3 of December's edition, I just want to say that I, for one, am really happy to see the sharrows. Positioned "correctly" or not, the sharrows' best function is to simply remind motorists to share the road. The best road markings are the ones that actually create a real, two-lined lane for bicyclists, but our residential roads are too narrow for that. The sharrows are the next best thing and I think it's reducing the amount of horn honking because it's increasing awareness and respect. The bike coalition is doing a GREAT job!
