This says a lot about the transformation that good ideas go through when they hit City Hall. Given the way they often leave, I might liken it to digestion.

Not that I'd ever advocate such a thing, but if an elite RTH hit squad went down and simply painted two yellow lines down the middle of the road, with little stencilled corax traffic signs zip-tied to poles, it's hard to imagine it not working better than this in many ways. People do this with bike lanes all the time (a much safer alternative, for obvious reasons). Is it so much to ask that multi-million-dollar budgets and professional engineers perform at least as well as what can be accomplished in a night with a few cans of paint?

Still glad to have that one lane, though. Better than having to ride on the sidewalk or go blocks out of my way to get a couple of blocks west.
