A partnership between the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County has yielded a slew of new bicycle safety bus stop advertisements targeting motorists. The main message: Share the road, give at least three feet of width when passing, and bicyclists have the right to use the full travel lane. Great message to spread, right?
Just one small problem: many of the ads were placed on the wrong side of the doublesided bus stop advertisement kiosks, which means that motorists (and bicyclists if riding properly) traveling along the city’s many one-way downtown streets will never see them!
I have been told that this unfortunate error will be rectified shortly. Let’s hope so…
Great ad, but not one motorist, bus driver, or bicyclist will see this on Northeast 1st Avenue.
