WHAT IS A SHARROW?

Sharon Boyd - Bent Fork Chronicles Editor

You may be interested to know that Allen Beauchamp & Al Brody have been working within the city traffic community to start using “sharrows.”  Several benefits of sharrows:

• Bicyclists position themselves further from parked cars to stay out of the door zone
• Passing motorists give more room to bicyclists
• Fewer bicyclists ride on the sidewalk
• Fewer bicyclists ride the wrong way

Come to the CSCC month meeting on 7 JUN to hear City Councilman Tim Leigh will speak about this bike-friendly road marking.
