Does anyone have a chalk-drawing cart (Athletic Field Marker) -- the type used for drawing lines on grass for soccer fields?

A temporary test chalk bike lane -- needs to be chalked in and videoed for youtube. Chalk imprints of bike logos, with stencils and chalk dust powder. Same for a few other locations where a block or two "breaks up" a bike lane with not even a single sharrow. In some places it is just a residential area without traffic markers so cars wouldn't hug the lane, and these would be near kid-filled areas, so would be safe places to test a clandestine bike lane.

Chalk drawing laws vary a bit, but as far as I know, it's legal on a Hamilton residential street (correct me if I am wrong). There appears to be no current municipal bylaw that prevents chalk artwork that happens to look like a bike lane, especially since it would actually temporarily enhance safety. Citizen-built crowdsourced temporary bike lane!
