HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED CONFLICT?
In our November issue of The Pedal Post (eNewsletter), Bike Fort Collins posed the question: “Have you experienced conflict, or right-of-way confusion at the intersection of Shields St. and Maple St. while riding your bike?”
Thank you to those who responded. Below is a recap of the results.
In addition, for those who reported conflict, we asked them to describe their experience. Here is a sampling of the responses we received:
- “Cars generally do not know the bike lane crosses on the left, so cyclists have to watch out for car turning in from both directions, as well as cars coming from behind as we make the cross.Again, thank you to all who responded—and for sharing their experiences. Stay tuned for additional surveys inquiring about other intersections and bicycle facilities.
