Interesting Lane Indicator


Near the Rio Salado path, from Kallipolis, the realm of the philosopher-kings

  1. A lane for really small people?

  2. That's not even wide enough for the average wide-load here in fat country. Especially if they are carrying two buckets of chicken and a large pizza.

  3. So, what do peds do that are going the OTHER way?

  4. Even in the 'tiny' UK that would be considered narrow..!!

  5. Okay, so, if a jogger comes up behind a person who is going merely "walking speed," does the solid yellow line mean the jogger CANNOT pass the walker? And can people legally walk TWO abreast in that lane ... or not?

    This is a GREAT demonstration of how idiotic some traffic rules are when they obviously are meant for motor vehicles and the powers-that-be try to apply them to bicycles OR pedestrians.

  7. I think they must be intended for a single-file line of very calm, skinny people all walking one direction, and not carrying buckets of chicken or pizzas. This paint reads better as art than serious lane marking, perhaps designed and installed by an ardent cyclist intending to make a statement about blurring the lines and mixing up the overlapping Venn diagram that represents pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers, to ask what would it be like if? I spend time in all three subsets, and this lane marking kind of blows my mind, so as art it is rather successful. As a lane marking, we are right to ask, though, who would, or even could, use this?
