A movable jersey wall in Vancouver protects simply and quickly.

 Parked cars, door zones, plastic hit posts, potted plants, curbs, bioswales. What do all of these things have in common? They are all methods to protect bike lanes from moving cars. Some of these methods are quicker to implement than others. Plastic hit posts are perhaps the quickest to implement and would reduce, though not prevent cars from entering bike lanes. They are cheap, easy to replace, but provide the least amount of protection.


Dear Mayor Nutter,

First, we want to sincerely thank you for your prioritization of pedestrian and bicycling safety during your tenure as Mayor of Philadelphia. With the implementation of MOTU, the buffered bike lanes on Spruce and Pine Streets, creating and maintaining over 500 miles of bike lanes, and the coming launch of an equitable bike share, your work will be unforgettable.
