Protected Bike Lanes


Israel. Urbanism. Probably not two words you often see together. Tel Aviv was little more than some sand dunes along the sea a little more than a 100 years ago. Today the metro area of Tel Aviv is home to 47% of Israel's population. A brash, modern metropolis has sprung up. Progressive urbanism has arrived. The city offers more than a few interesting spots to enjoy the Mediterranean climate.

 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.
