Bike lane danger (3 Responses)

the new bike lanes on Mt Auburn are very dangerous- they disappear intermittently and cars are weaving into and out of the lanes to adjust to the bus lanes- and then into bikes! I almost was hit twice today with cars appropriately moving into the right lane by Star market and then back left by the split past Aberdeen.

Response from Will

I know what you mean.

My own take is that overall they are much safer than the complete absence of lanes that preceded them.

We have to let the cars move over in the left turn areas and even before the lanes you had cars making that move at that point.

Do you feel we are better off with the old way — no lanes at all? Or do you see another alternative?
