"As you approach an intersection, you should see dashing and that indicates to the cars and to the bikes that that's a share space now," Peterson said.
And that's in a nutshell what I don't like about the bike boulevard concept. Life
is "a share[d] space now." Telling drivers that they have to share on bike boulevards implies that they don't have to elsewhere, which is contrary to state law and an affront to humanity.
As to the previous post, I've pretty much given up on cops citing motorists for just about any offense to cyclists. The 50 percent figure is, I would imagine, a blind-ass guess. However, given the epidemic prevalence of texting, web browsing, and cell phone obsessed drivers, they've certainly going to have their fair share of the fault for accidents even if you accept the stereotypical profile of the scofflaw cyclist.
