The Power Of Paint; Paint It Red (Or Green)
This before and after of a street in The Netherlands shows what potential a resurfacing job has to improve conditions for everyone. The bold delineation really makes a statement. The blog, A View From the Cycle Path explains that on this street the improvement isn’t even permanent. It is slated to be narrowed and speeds set at 18mph in the near future. Isn’t it nice that in the meantime, a city planner found the will and the money so the public wouldn’t have to wait for an improvement.
NOTE: Painted Bike lanes are increasing in the United States, but don’t expect to see them anytime soon in NW Lower Michigan.
