EXCEPTION! Don’t split lanes. Yes, you can fit…if the people in the cars don’t decide to box you in or murder you with their 2 ton bullets. And there’s always the chance the soccor mom on the cell phone spazzes out as you pass three inches from her window and does something stupid leading to other people getting hurt because you’re an impatient asshat.
The bike lane, though…if there’s no bicycles, I’m okay with that.
