Those marks on the road showing a bike with arrows under it? I get asked about them all the time and people are sometimes confused because they’re painted in the middle of what is obviously a lane for cars. Well, they’re called “sharrows” and they mean the lane is designated to be shared by cars AND bicycles. We have several in downtown Spokane that were painted in the past couple years.
Turns out folks in Edmonton, Alberta Canada had some questions about them too. So the folks at the Pedestrian and Bicycle Council there got out the Legos and set about showing people how to use them. Brilliant work and there’s nothing I love more than a Lego stop-motion video. And where do you find hippie Lego people, by the way?
