A few months ago, one of my neighbors hosted an "adopt a pothole" bake sale at Park and Drachman. That intersection is like a moonscape. I notice that it's not on the list in this article.
What was the outcome of the bake sale? I think there's a fine for patching potholes with stale baked goods. The city plopped some asphalt down on that intersection a while back, but it was no improvement for cyclists. Lots of students live on that route and the pharmacy at Park & Grant is a significant student destination. There are people in the city who understand how and why people chose certain routes for riding and what conditions will cause someone to disregard riding as an option altogether. So, why Park continues to be ignored completely baffles me. And, this has been bothering me for some time: How is a driver supposed to know what a sharrow means? I couldn't find a mention or picture of one in any DMV stuff. It's just another road marking; if drivers even notice it at all. It lacks the implication to drivers that cyclists have the right to be 'out' in the 'lane' which most drivers believe we do not have.
