Wrong way sign for cyclists

We’ve always been very supportive of the city’s new bike lanes, provided they’re ridden in the correct direction—which is to say, unless they’re two-way lanes, Kent Avenue and Prospect Park West style, in the same direction as car traffic in the adjacent lane. Wrong-way riders are a dime a dozen, and dangerous for any number of reasons, a hazard the city’s Department of Transportation seems to finally be doing something about. On Wednesday Flickr user c34 snapped this photo, at Broadway and 18th Street, of new signage warning would-be wrong-way lane-takers. It’s a little too subtle for the likes of TrustoCorp, so it must be the real deal. More please! (Streetsblog)
