Toronto to consider sharrows on tiny section of Bay Street

This is a horrible horrible article entitled “Toronto City Council to consider bike lanes on Bay St“.

1) it’s only 50 metres of Bay Street, near Bloor, and 2) it’s only sharrows.  Sharrows are NOT bikelanes.  They pretty little things with good intentions, but don’t work at all. Drivers still try to force cyclists out of lanes with sharrows.

I don’t know how this is even a debate at Council. The righties don’t want them, and I’m disappointed in the bike-positive councillors for advocating for sharrows, of all things.

The ongoing — and highly polarized — struggle to carve out the appropriate place for cyclists on Toronto’s streets continues at city hall next week, when councillors will consider extending bike lanes on Bay St., as well as recommendations from the health board to increase cyclist safety.

After much discussion with cyclists, local residents and business owners, city staff are recommending “sharrow” markings to designate shared lanes on Bay in the Yorkville area, between Cumberland St. and about 30 metres south of Bloor St. W.
