I just returned from Chicago where I noticed that the city bike path lanes are painted a bright lime green.
Many of the comments around the new bike path on Memorial Boulevard were centered around people being concerned with visibility of the path.
I suggest we use a similar approach and brightly color the paths for greater visibility and increased safety.
While there is no perfect solution with regards to the increased summer traffic, besides employing some patience behind the wheel, we can increase the visibility of these lanes to ensure that safety for both cyclists and motorists remains our number one priority.
What do you think? Would bright lime green bike lanes improve the path's visibility?
