There’s a lot of talk lately about sharrows — shared lane arrows — which are properly used instead of bike lanes to keep cyclists out of the “door zone,” and motorists aware of a cyclist’s proper place on the road.
Information on the web about sharrows has been sparse. But this video from the San Luis Obispo County Bike Coalition does a great job showing what a sharrow is, how it is used, and what it does.
We love sharrows, but we especially love good communication efforts like this!
Blacksburg has a sharrow project in the works — stay tuned.
