I did like your line about gang initiations, though. That one's an 8 on style points.
Uh, that was me. And maybe I forgot the sarcasm tag?
Yeah, I caught the sarcasm. Sorry I credited your funny to Ninja, I was skimming too fast and trying to give him credit for some humor, at least.
Went through last night at a little after 5 pm, all the way up Fordem to Northport; even though the painting trucks were still out, no backups/problems. I did see someone in an SUV cruising down the center lane for awhile, but that driver moved to the correct lane once they hit the stretch with some actual directions already painted correctly.
Similar this morning.
In response to David's concerns about safety: Whether it will turn out to be that way or not, I will say it feels
much safer to ride Sherman in the current configuration than before. Two full lanes going the same way should theoretically be safer for bikes, but in practice what tended to happen in the four lane configuration is that drivers in the right lane would not change lanes or move over at all for bikes ... causing a delightful surprise of someone speeding by you about 2 inches away. At least now everyone should know where they are supposed to be; as for bikers or cars wandering out of their designated lanes, there's no configuration of a roadway that can fix inattentive drivers.
