Considering the stuff OP cited directly said this shouldn't be used on any street that wasn't straight, slow and not crowded, this obviously was a misapplication of the concept. I don't know if it's...

Well, here's how not to do it, courtesy of San Diego. The problem is obvious from the video, there's way too much car traffic on this street for this to work, and no one bothered to tell residents...

My null hypothesis?! I should probably have gotten the Nobel for coming up with that being the default test for any statistical statement. I don't think you really can get beyond "well, it isn't...

That's interesting--if your impression that bike traffic is up on Lakeview, it suggests that the primary function of these advisory lane might be to "advertise" that cyclists can safely use the road...

Maybe, but there's an argument to be made here that using a non-standard tool actually could weaken the usefulness of the tools you already have--I'm not sure I like the idea of creating different...

Sorry, but as far as I can tell, that's a "man bites dog" video from 5 years ago. I don't have any reason to believe that's a common occurrence.

Really? I'm not aware of a lot of places where getting stopped for a FRAP violation happens much if at all. NYC maybe. I think you're going to be looking for a very long time for an incident where a...

"Practicable" is really a rule of reason, you are supposed to use your judgment reasonably in determining the practicable far right position. I can't imagine a jurisdiction that would find that...

Totally on board with this, it's nice to actually discuss the ideas instead of wading through 24 pages of confirmation biased interpretations of carnage.

I think the contrast between this solution...

As a cyclist, if I see those dotted lines approaching an intersection, I'm absolutely getting out of that bike lane and taking the traffic lane, just as I would at any other intersection where a...

I have no way of knowing if it would make drivers more or less cautious--the reason they don't recommend these for high traffic/higher speed roads is that it actually increases close encounters...

I live on a street in Nashua that's too narrow for two cars to get past each other when there's cars parked in the road, yet somehow we all manage to get through every day without any fancy marking. ...

You multiquoted, so I'm not sure if that snarky comment was aimed at me, but if you follow the links in the OP sources, you will see that there's evidence for a 45% reduction in the chances of...

The main thing I'm getting from the linked sources is that this really only makes sense on narrow,...
