these signs are dumb! there should be one for no cars during those times lol
But they're popping up everywhere. The semantics are too weird - cyclists ride in this lane during these hours, and somewhere else outside of these hours!?!
I think the intent is to allow cars to park in those lanes outside of peak hours, but agree they are dumb!
Well, every where:
Yeah, traffic jamming - but quite roads are safer ;-)
Yeah Yeah, And no broken/smashed beer bottles on the Road but the bike lane of course Hahaha
Most times I flow in with the traffic anyway, not slower of course.
What's the confusion? I've always read these signs to mean that between the stated times, its a bike-only lane. Outside those times, cars are allowed to park in the lane. It hardly implies that you're NOT allowed to ride in that space outside those times, just that you'll be sharing it with cars. What's wrong with that?
I'm with Belinda, I can't see the problem
It ceases to be a bike lane out of those hours, so the white line "vanishes" and it becomes like any other street - cars park there and its no longer compulsory to ride in.
careful about that last bit:
247—Riding in a bicycle lane on a road
(1) The rider of a bicycle riding on a length of road with a bicycle lane designed for
bicycles travelling in the same direction as the rider must ride in the bicycle lane
unless it is impracticable to do so.
I think you've missed the subtlety of the situation - the bike lane ceases to exist out of the designated times and becomes the usual car versus cycle playground.
