Shared Lane Marking

Shared lane markings (or “sharrows”) are a roadway marking that helps guide bicyclists to ride outside the “door zone” next to on-street parking and where they are visible to motorists turning from side streets.  Shared lane markings are not a type of bicycle facility, they are a marking to help improve safety.

Wide Curb Lane

Wide curb lanes are urban streets that are wide enough (usually 14-feet wide) for a bicyclist and a motor vehicle to share the lane safely.  Wide curb lanes are usually used when there is not enough space to add marked bike lanes.

Did you know?

Did you know that when driving, motorists sometimes don’t see what they aren’t looking for?  It’s important to always be on the lookout for pedestrian and cyclists—not just other cars.  Before taking a right, motorists should first assess the crosswalk before entering. If there are no pedestrians or cyclists, the motorist may proceed. If a pedestrian is present, Florida State law dictates that the motorist yield to the pedestrian and wait until the pedestrian has left the crosswalk before proceeding.  Do you think you are an alert driver? Take this test and see.
