Signs In Bike Lanes Compromise Cyclist Safety

The new roundabout at Cliff Drive and Las Positas is quite popular. Motorists love that traffic moves smoothly with almost no delays.

Like any project, the final touches continue and that means continued trouble for cyclists.

As cyclists approach the new Cliff Drive/Las Positas traffic roundabout they're forced out into traffic

That free-flowing traffic means that motorists aren’t slowing down as they approach, but cyclists are expected to merge into the travel lane.

There’s no need to force cyclists out of the bike lane – it’s not safe.

It’s another case of cyclist safety being compromised for the convenience of motorists.
