    Default Wilson Blvd protected bike lane video

    I checked out the new protected bike lane in Rosslyn today! It doesn't look like drivers (parkers?) quite understand yet… anyone know if they'll be adding flexposts?

    There does not seem to be any indication that it is a bike lane, e.g., bike symbols.

    I saw one "Bike Lane" sign, but other than that, there really is no indication that it is a bike lane versus a parking lane. Once it is properly marked, I am sure that most drivers will stop parking in the lane. They will probably mark it and flex post it like the one in Crystal City, hopefully at some point in the near future.

    Wow, that video showing so many cars parked in the bike lane is just unreal! They should put cones there in the meantime because drivers are clearly just taking advantage of the situation.

    On the plus side, at least the unoccupied parking spaces are like having a SUPER-WIDE bike lane...at least until they get everything sorted out

    Having read this, I am now sufficiently prepared for the level of thoughtfulness I will encounter watching tonight's debate.
