Short thick bollards in New York, NY


  • Joshua Putnam

    How is a cyclist supposed to pass that pedicab blocking the path up ahead? If a path is going to be barrier-limited, it needs to be wide enough to allow safe passing.

    Good idea to separate cyclist from pedestrians for a multitude of reasons (would you place pedestrians on the roadway to share with automobiles?). Yet, once again, the “thick bollards” pose an imminent collision threat to cyclists. Placing a 48″ cyclone fence between the bollards and the bike lane would mitigate the threat AND protect cyclists/pedestrians/motorists.

      Thanks for letting us know! This essay was a repost from People for Bikes so the attribution got lost. I’ve added it now!
