Buffered Bike Lanes
“How can we create a buffer between bike lanes and oncoming vehicles?”
Bike lanes are wonderful for granting more public space to bicycle riders. However, sometimes there is no physical protection that can prevent a car from hitting them. So how can we use our urban planning mindset to get around this? Well, what if we were to create a physical barrier that would prevent a roadside collision? This is the idea behind Buffered Bike Lanes. One example of a buffered bike lane are Parking Protected Bike Lanes.
