UNT Avenue C gets sharrows and signs

After UNT announced plans to remove the Avenue C raised bike lanes, concerned citizens contacted UNT and the city, and the demolition was put on hold until recent weeks. Finally, we see that freshly painted sharrows and accompanying “Bicycle May Use Full Lanes” signs are up.  Since the city recently mentioned that Eagle could get bike lanes, this North/South route would tie-in nicely.  I ride this route often, and I can often sense impatient cars behind me, yet the road is not wide enough to allow comfortable/safe passing.  Hopefully these signs will show both drivers and cyclists that it’s ok to ride here.

Thanks to JW for the 2nd and 3rd photos:

    I wonder how long it will take drivers to accept it?

    James,

    we all know that drivers of cars cannot read!

    I too have felt the pressure of impatient eyes from the motor vehicles, but the speed limit is so slow on campus it really doesn’t make much difference. I teach them a little about patience.

    Is there contact information for the person(s) responsible for this? I’d like to send a lil’ thank you e-mail and start rewarding positive bicycle actions from institutions instead of just punishing their mistakes.

    these signs and road markings are great. the city should look at using these instead of bike lanes, though i dont know how much paint a bike lane vs the markings are it does seem like an inexpensive way to mark the roads.
