Give cyclists space
This is an important message, and the intention behind it is great, but the execution – not as much. This ironic sign is there to remind the drivers to allow enough space for the cyclists, but while doing so, it takes up all the space on their designated lane. This is just an unfortunate spot for this sign, and whoever put it there did a pretty lousy job.
This sign actually forces the poor cyclists to leave their lane and step on the road, just to avoid hitting the sign. Cycling is a great form of transportation – it’s environment-friendly, it’s cheaper than a car and it’s a great form of exercise. However, instead of encouraging the cyclists, this sign just makes life that much harder for them.
