A big shout-out to all our Sharrows Test Ride volunteers who came out this week to help push the City of LA one week closer to seeing the first ever official sharrows in this city. We test rode two sections of town that will be getting sharrows painted third week of June, making 100 passes on these streets while LADOT recorded how cars reacted to bicyclists taking the lane—which sharrows will direct bikes to do. The experience was altogether enlightening and felt as if simply riding the street was helping to make them safer…which was exactly the case.
We’ve got two more weeks of test rides and then it’s up to LADOT to put the paint on the ground. We’ve been keeping tabs and all signs have pointed to everything being on schedule, so stay tuned to make sure the city holds up its end of the bargain.
