|Just not even trying|
The bike lane engineers, speed hump engineers, and painters should all get together over coffee for a good clear-headed planning session before they go and do embarrassing stuff like this. In addition to being a part-time bike lane, which in itself sends mixed signals, the cognitive dissonance of a speed bump extending into a bike lane like this is just too much.
Lookit*: bike lane installed to encourage cyclists such as myself to use the street for fun and transport, generally at a slower speed than vehicle traffic. Speed hump installed much later than bike lane to encourage drivers of vehicles to slow the heck down. Speed hump interfacing with bike lane causes several issues. Bikes don't need to be slowed because they are already slower. Single cyclist who sees hump can go around, but cyclists riding legally two abreast will be challenged. Gap at side of street inevitably encourages drivers to swerve to the right to spare one side of the vehicle the hump. Drivers are not supposed to drive in the bike lane, but how many of those tickets have been issued since the beginning of bike lanes? The hump and the lane painted line should align. The hump should not enter the bike lane. I assume the indent in the middle is for motorcyclists? Is that true? Good for them, although they may have to be on the lookout for drivers swerving to the left to get their left wheel in the indent.
