Bike boxes were recently installed at the intersections of Broadway/11th and Ocean/California, joining existing installations on Ocean Park at Lincoln and Main. Bike boxes are traffic markings that allow cyclists to position themselves for maximum visibility and safety at intersections during the red light phase. They are intended to prevent collisions between right-turning motorists and bicyclists going straight and to make it easier for cyclists to turn left.

 

  • Drivers: when the signal is yellow or red, stop at the white line behind the green bike box. Keep the bike box clear for cyclists to use.

 

  • Cyclists: When the signal is yellow or red, carefully enter the bike box from the bike lane. Keep the crosswalk clear for pedestrians.
