Streetfilms: Return of Bike Box!

We can't set this one up any better than Mr. Eckerson himself, so without further ado:

At just about any public gathering I go these days, there's usuallyat least one person who will come up and give me an enthusiastic "Bike Box!", based upon our earlier, popular Streetfilm.In my heart I hoped there would one day be a sequel to Bike Box, and itall came together last week while in Portland at the World Car-freeConference. Earlier this year, Portland's Office of Transportationinstalled many high visibility bike boxes that are filled in lime greento help cyclists avoid right hook collisions. (Note: NYC now has a fewgreen ones as well.)

What we were unprepared for was being stopped by random cyclists whowanted to lend their collective "Bike Box!" exclamations. So watch andsee all the fun improv as it flows.

Clarence and the Streetfilms crew are also looking for homegrown bike box videos to feature in the Streetfilms sidebar. To participate, post a vid of bike boxes in your city on YouTube and tag it "streetfilms."

Bike Box!
