Description

There is a new sign/warning to bicyclists to 'bike safe, do not pass trucks on the right.' This seems like a response to the recent horribly unfortunate and sad bike accident that lead to a biker's death in Porter Square. I fully appreciate the city's concern but there is nothing wrong nor illegal about a biker passing cars or trucks or buses on the right; in fact, that is exactly what a biker should do. This sign should say: "trucks, watch for bikers passing on the right" instead of giving confusing information to bikers. How else should a biker pass a truck if not on the right?
