Bike Box Video

Informational HOWTO video explains how to use the green bike boxes in Edmonton, SK AB.

Via Clarence.

Given the confusion that’s often expressed here about right turns, we need a similar video for San Jose’s new buffered bike lanes.

    Edmonton is actually in Alberta, not Saskatchewan.

    I don’t really get the point of bike boxes. It seems like a formalized queue jump system that will inspire more resentment and confusion than understanding or goodwill… the video is a great idea if it gets widely shared or broadcast, because although I am an avid bicycle commuter there are none in my city and I was unsure of how they worked too.
    Seems to make more sense on a T shaped intersection like the one pictured.

    “Given the confusion…” If the design is confusing, maybe it should be redesigned?

    I knew that. I was just testing to see if you were paying attention. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

    Seriously, though: thank you. I will edit.

    Bikes overtaking stationary cars is as much “queue jumping” as cars overtaking moving bikes. All traffic is a queue, whether it’s moving or not.
