Restriping Divisidero: A Modest Proposal to Improve Upon the Recent Stimulus Project

So, we’re looking at at three lanes of Divisidero in the Western A, see?

The right lane is for parked cars. It’s too narrow. The middle lane is for buses and trucks and bikes and whatnot. It too, is too narrow. The upshot of this is a bunch of frustrated drivers who honk honk honk, just the way the driver of the car you can see did while changing lanes to pass cyclists.

Now, note the “tree lines” that hem in all the lanes. So, all that you can do at this point is shrinkify the fast lane, right? Wouldn’t that make sense?

Yep, it would.

How about moving these stripes a foot towards the middle of the street, for starters?
