Button activated narrow bridge crossing. I've also seen one on a local tunnel, but I don't get past there by bike much... I'll get it sometime.
Over 55 and they take a machine to make a 'rumble strip' on the road, so that doesn't work out so well here..

We have those crossings without stoplights here in Ontario as well, out of state drivers get confused sometimes so you have to be very cautious...but one of them is near the ER entrance of the hospital...

I found this a few days ago.

And one wonders why cyclists get confused.




There were a couple more along the lane with the arrows the other way.

It would be

Except, the question would come up which side you should pass oncoming bicycles on.

I'll have to go back there, but I think they vary which side the arrows are on depending on where you are along the path. Passing rules could become quite complex.

Perhaps the city has just given in to the idea of cyclists riding on the left.

Could be some misfired neurons instead of total insanity.

Ok,

I found this one interesting.

Bike Lane goes straight. You can see curb to right of bike lane.

Obligatory Right Turn lane is created for 1/2 block to the right of the bike lane.

Yield signs above on light pole and bridge for the optional straight/turn lane.

Lots of green paint on the road.

Bikes and cars don't mix here, but we have ''Give Way' markings where the paths cross the roads - just to remind cyclists that motorists cantc be trusted to stop for them...
