New High-Visibility Bike Lanes in Brooklyn
The McBrooklyn Blog spots this freshly painted high-visibility bike lane on Henry Street in Brooklyn:
Could be that the NYC Department of Transportation actually listened to groups like Transportation Alternatives,
which advocates painting bike lanes a solid color in order to improve
visibility and curb blockage by motor vehicles. Bikers have reported
that the Tillary Street lane is painted green, and the lane along Henry
Street in Brooklyn Heights is also painted.
Looks like it might be working. While a car did drive into the bike lane, it quickly — "Oops!" — swerved back out again.
