CALTRANS Considering New Bike Signs

9:34 AM PDT on June 24, 2008


CALTRANS Is Considering Replacing the Share the Road Signs

Will new signage help make the road more safe for cyclists?  That's the question being pondered by state officials working to replace "Share the Road" signs with more clear signage.  Cyclists have long complained that "Share the Road" was a vague statement and was often misinterpreted by drivers who believed the signs were telling cyclists that they had to share the road with cars and should move out of driving lanes to allow cars to pass.

Don't expect to see the signs on our roads too soon.  Having been approved by several state advisory committees they now need approval from the Federal Highway Administration.  Once approved, this new signage will first be used in the City of Santa Cruz.
