I'm supposed to know what a sharrow is. It's a bike safety pictogram, but my first response was to wish the pictogram user had employed words since hieroglyphics don’t speak to me.
So what does this new pictogram– about 75 yards east of the transit center– mean? Does it mean there is a corporal on a bicycle nearby? Or that this is where the motorized vehicles flatten bicycles?
My guess was right, that there wasn't enough room for a bike lane, so motorists should be alert for bikes taking advantage of their right to use the full vehicular travel lane.
