  • Traffic Signal Acknowledged
    Boston University Brg Boston, MA, 02215, USA - Fenway-Kenmore

    The signage here for cyclists is a little ambiguous. The sign directs cyclists to use the car lane instead of the bike path. Not sure why, as the bike path seems perfectly usable. If it's not, it should be coned off or something. Is it because there hasn't been a signal added near where the bike lane on Essex crosses with Dummer Street?

    If I disobey the sign and choose to ride in the bike lane, then there's nothing telling me to stop, or traffic on Dummer St., to look out for me. If I obey the sign and merge with the cars on Essex, however, I get honked at and nearly hit every time. Please make the bike lane safe and usable by adding a stop sign at the intersection with Dummer St. I know to stop, of course, but let's give cyclists the same redundant safety design that we do for cars, especially if we want them to obey the same rules as cars. Cyclists shouldn't have to "assume" they should stop or "assume" cars don't see them. They should be able to simply follow the signs like other road users. Thank you.
