I think it’s Title 75 3309(3):

(3) Lanes limited to specific use.–Official traffic-control devices may be erected to restrict the use of specified lanes to specified classes or types of traffic or vehicles, including multioccupant vehicles or car pools, and drivers of vehicles shall obey the directions of every such device.

Official traffic-control devices include “Signs, signals, markings and devices…” according to section 102 of that title.

@V, best comment after that article –

“Having been hit at 11th and Hawthorne by a right hook I can tell you with confidence that the bike boxes do nothing if the driver of a car will look you in the eye and turn anyway.”

I like the added visibility of the green paint, but you still need to have your head on a swivel.

No one’s ever gone wrong by underestimating the observational powers of the American driver (with apologies to HL Mencken).

I rode down Liberty yesterday–the lane looks great!

@Marko82, how are you feeling??

The City wants to hear from you about the green lane. Call the mayor’s office and thank them and ask for more! Or simply submit a thank you to 311, but that won’t go to the mayor’s office that will go to Planning and/or DPW.

Does this also work as a method of contacting the mayor’s office?
