City Waiting for More Riders in Dangerous Bike Lanes

The Star’s Jon Murray has an article this morning on the miles and miles of new bike lanes the city has created.

“You may have heard the grumbles throughout winter as Indianapolis drivers navigated around slivers of streets marked off for miles and miles with freshly painted bike lanes. And, often, not a bicyclist in sight.

“As prime cycling weather takes hold –and as motorists grapple with what the sometimes-confusing markings and sympointbols all mean –now comes the test for the city’s newly expanded 64-mile network of on-street bikeways: Will bicyclists start using them?”

I wouldn’t count on it. Most cyclists I’ve spoken with are planning on avoiding the routes. The term “death trap” has often been used to describe the new paths. As the Star article points out, the paths are confusing, especially to motorists. That confusion is bound to increased car vs. bicycle police reports being completed.
