This morning on my commute into Boston, I spotted BTD prepping some “Share The Road” signs to be hung up on Comm. Ave. by Kenmore Sq.

BTD Installing "Share The Road" Signs on Comm. Ave.

When I walked by the same spot this afternoon, I couldn’t find them anywhere. Has anyone seen where they’ve been put up?

    Only years (in some cases) after the Sharrows were installed. It’s probably been on someone’s punch list for the entire time…

    I don’t want to “share”. I want my own cycle tracks, separated bike lanes, painted bike lanes, etc. No cars allowed, please.

    Talk about a waste of money. Come on Boston these signs do not work and do nothing to help folks cycling or folks driving. Neither do sharrows for that matter, they are useful for wayfinding but that is really about it.

    How about less signs and more paint, I can find PLENTY of areas that need to be re painted/ thermoplastic applied along comm.

    Same idea as the wasted wear a helmet markings usually right next to a very faded bike lane marking! Gee I wonder what will actually help people more, hint it’s not the “wear a helmet” marking.

    I go through this area daily, I will check on them tomorrow to see if I can find them…
