Totally weird ...

Totally weird ...
The lane closest to the bottom of the photo is designated as a Right Turn Only ( used to be Right Turn or Straight ahead )..

The Center lane is for cyclists ... I wouldn't ride on that ..

Lane where the car is is designated as Left Turn or Straight ahead ..

Yet, if a cyclist is going Straight ahead ..They Must Dodge cars !

Who re-striped the pavement did a good job -

But it is stupid .. not to even mention not safe
NCDOT [ North Carolina Dept of Transportation is the guilty party ] ..

When this was brought up at a City Council Meeting ..

Our Mayor was told we have to wait for NCDOT to fix it ..

His reply, "If they don't get out here and fix it - I'll do it !"

[not unuusal for him -- have seen him on riding mower when the grass on the exit or entrance ramps to the Interstate gets too high - he doesn't wait for NCDOT -- gets out there and cuts it himself]

Won't be surprised if I drive over that way and he has paint brush in his hand - he doesn't like to wait for the 'powers that be "

Congratulations. That's why I bike on the sidewalk. It's easier to avoid people walking than people driving.

Ein Fahrradfahrer der so eine Radspur benutzt, sollte darauf achten, dass er gut zu erkennen ist. Beispielsweise durch das Überstreifen solcher handelsüblichen gelben Warnwesten. Hier ein positives Musterbeispiel:
