Sharrow the Road...

I'm a fan of sharrows.

Simple, Intuitive, Inexpensive. They are a good choice for communities that do not have the ability to create distinct bicycle lanes. Like Stauntons narrow streets.

When dealing with transportation issues/devices, if it's not in the manual, good luck getting it implemented. This has been a problem with sharrows. well...

Sharrow met Manual, Manual met Sharrow.

Sharrows will be included in the next Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. It will take some time for state departments of transportations to accept and adopt the new manual. But it's a good start.

thanks to Commute by Bike and Cyclicious for posting this info.

not so nice pic of a car not sharing the sharrow lane on cyclicious...
