Less than three months after they appeared on Seventh Avenue in Times Square, some of New York City's first sharrows are well on their way to disappearing. And so you have to wonder: Can the city's commitment to 200 miles of new bike lanes in three years be meaningful if this is their condition so soon after they were painted? Looks like another argument for physically separated bike lanes.


Is this road meant to be shared with unicycles?
