Road Signs For Riders
There’s been some chatter recently about road signs. Apparently there are a whole new set of ‘em being rolled out across the US, as shown here on cyclelicio.us :
In the UK, we’re seeing more of these ones, which allow bikes to contraflow the wrong way down one-way streets:
Strangely, I’m not so sure that this is a good thing. Don’t get me wrong on this - it’s good to offer people on bikes a shortcut that’s unavailable to cars. But drivers are often unaware that for bikes at least, they’re on a two way street, and drive as if they own the damned road.
Meanwhile, via Rob Woolley on Facebook , I notice that the traffic signs in Italy are advising drivers of the hazards of an entirely different kind of rider:
Personally I’d rather stick with a Brooks saddle !
Do you have any unusual / new bike-related signs where you are?
