Default I cannot quit laughing..

San Diego has redesigned a two lane road into a suicidal SINGLE lane with two-way traffic...Specifically, the city, without consultation or announcement, redesigned a “two-lane” road along a stretch of Gold Coast Drive in the Mira Mesa suburb that accommodates two lanes of bike traffic but only one center lane for vehicles.

But it is not a one-way road; it's still a two-way traffic road with a single lane. Vehicles are expected to dodge each other as they drive toward head-on collisions.

So dodge a car in the chicken lane and you risk hitting a cyclist.

I played this video game as a kid It was called Frogger.

....but it has the much needed bike lanes. That's a huge much needed item that makes it all worthwhile.

The lunacy in California just gets more frightening every day. What is going on with this government?

In multiple threads here over the years I have predicted increasingly onerous regulations that would limit, restrict, or ban the operation of cars in the near future. Here the priority of the road is turned upside down favoring bikes over cars.

This is what our future looks like. This is the steppingstones to the full implementation of Agenda 2030. You will own nothing and be happy.

They had one of those switch lanes in Cincinnati Ohio that was there since the 70's that I can remember, probably still there today. Some may know what I'm talking about.

It was 4 way traffic but 3 lanes would have a green arrow in one direction depending on the time of day, and would switch. It was confusing as hell and had a lot of accidents. I avoided it.

I read they are thinking of doing something similar here in Arizona on the I-17 as you climb the mountain from Black Canyon City to the top near Sunset Point, which is about a 6 mile stretch. They want to add a lane to one side which is a major undertaking in and of itself. But I read they will use directional green lights and have 3 lanes coming up the mountain and down the mountain depending on the time of day. The scary part about that is that the North and South bound lanes are separated by the mountain on most of that stretch so once you're on the other side you can't cross over.
Sounds like a mess to me. We already have enough wrong way drivers through that stretch of I-17, so lets add more confusion, lol. That was the original proposal anyway, not sure if that has changed, I quit paying attention to it.

Reminds me of all these round-a-bouts they keep putting in. Why we are trying to be like the Europeans I can't figure out, but one thing is for sure, a lot of people can't figure out those round-a-bouts either. They do make a great opportunity for drifting though

I regularly drive two different roads that have bicycle lanes with auto lanes on either side of the bike lanes. I’ve never seen a biker using one of the lanes, which doesn’t surprise me as a view it as a death trap for bikers.

I’m extremely careful when I’m driving on either side of the bike lanes as I feel I’m being put in a situation where, if an accident were to happen, I’d likely have an issue whether I was at fault or not.

Lots of cities pushing the bike to work idea and many are designed like I’ve seen in Europe. Thing is, Americans are too fat and lazy and aren’t into biking to work like people are in Europe, so bike lanes here go largely unused and a waste of highway space.

When they start paying registration fees, road tax, and most importantly insurance, I will consider them worthy of having a dedicated lane

Yet the uninformed continue to vote these people in. And then ask why this is happening.
