    In DC I find myself proceeding on LPI when I'm in a bike lane (eg Eye Street SE/SW) or where I'm turning shortly (eg at SB on 7th SW at Maine, just before turning onto the Wharf cycle track). If...

    It is not legal for a cyclist to treat a red as stop or a stop as yield in Virginia. Even when an LPI is in effect. City of Alexandria has installed signs like this to make exceptions at particular...

    Maryland and Virginia having the same law should simplify things for motorists 😉


    I paid more attention in my weekend rides, and also note that in Alexandria and Arlington it appears double...

    Maybe I will go out hunting for this, but from my recall, and a bit of checking on google street veiews, I believe MStone is correct. Two lane roads in built up suburbs (at least around ALX and...

    If you can back this statement up with data, you should publish it. You'd create quite a stir at TRB (Transportation Research Board)

    So in the last couple of days I have made more of a point of noticing double yellow lines. Plenty of them on streets in Arlington and Alexandria that are straight with fairly gentle grades, and...

    Maximum width of a non oversized vehicle is 8.5 feet, including mirrors. https://vacode.org/46.2-1105/

    IIUC that is also the standard width of a parking lane.

  11. One reason you rarely see 14 feet lanes anymore...

    One reason you rarely see 14 feet lanes anymore is that lanes that wide encourage speeding. Local govts like to put in " low hanging fruit" painted bike lanes instead. Doesnt remove a travel lane,...

    1. IIUC VBF is currently discussing exactly what is a substandard width lane, and how to get standards accepted by LE across the Commonwealth. IF you have an issue with the details of a particular...

    Double yellows are striped based on space needed to pass motor vehicles, often large, generally fast. The amount of space needed to pass a cyclist is much less, and often the double yellows are...

    The new law passed in Virginia requires drivers to change lanes to pass bikes if they cannot give 3 feet otherwise (and on a standard width lane, they cannot, even if cyclists go single file to the...

    I don't want to overemphasize how safe it is because I have friends advocating to make that area better, and I hate to undercut them in any way.
