    Casey, counterintuitive equals massive money grabs for municipalities. It’s not an accident. Might ask him what date of the week you got your ticket? The cynic in me suspects it might’ve been towards the end of the month,where quotas for ticket issuance might have had to have been met.

    I think a lot of bicycle infrastructure is designed by people who aren't cyclists....

    Hey Casey, im from the Netherlands where as you know many people ride bikes. The problem with this intersection is that you have way to much speed coming down the bridge. With that you could hurt people on the zebra path. In holland they often resolve this problem with a simple zig zag in front of the zebra path.

    This is exactly where and why I was ticketed 4 years ago. I wanted to go to court and argue insufficient signage and no logic in the planning and so sent in the ticket saying I wouldn't pay the fine and would instead go to court. I never received a court date and assumed it was thrown out. NOPE! 3 years alter I went to the DMV to get a motorcycle license and was prevented because I had an oustanding fine (!!!!) of $800!!! They told me they never received my response and the fine kept accruing!

    Dude, those arrows do NOT show the direction of travel for the bike lane. They are YIELD arrows, telling cyclist coming from the right way that they have to yield for all other traffic (crossing cyclists and pedestrians) before going into the bridge. It's the same as for cars. They use the same signs so that people will find it more intuitive by default. There are two big red signs saying going straight is the wrong way. It is very clearly labeled. Do I agree that cycling lanes should be separated by direction in highly congested areas, yes. But on this particular matter, you're wrong.

    I totally agree it is counter-intuitive and poorly designed. However, even in your video there are many pedestrians crossing right before the concrete opening. I feel your suggestion does not take into account the safety of foot traffic. Golden rule is Pedestrians before Cyclists before Automobiles. And even with pedestrians, there may be visually impaired people crossing the crosswalk. So while I TOTALLY understand your argument, maybe if you could suggest another solution where pedestrian safety is also addressed. Respectfully, your solution is not a fundamental solution at that venue. I post this comment as a person who got into the field of urban regeneration and tactical urbanism precisely because I was inspired by your very video of the NYC bike lanes problem. I am an activist advocating better urban design for pedestrians and cyclists/all other clean mobility methods alike.

    That is actually a cross section for both cyclists and pedestrian. The cyclists going down the bridge might move so fast that might easily hit pedestrian that are crossing the road. However the cyclists going to the bridge will be relatively slower won't hit people that easily. That might be the reason that they only allow one direction in that cross section.

    Why didn't you go straight down that forbidden path to see why authorities do not want bike flow from that direction? I am sure 100% there IS a reason. That route did not just appear there by accident, someone took all variables in account (waaay more than you can think of) and made the decision to spread bike traffic left and right and not straight. Your reason is "it is counter intuitive"!? Have you any idea how many "counter intuitive" paths for cars and trucks there are? But we ordinary people just look at signs painted on the road, metal bars directing us in proper direction and colorful signs with drawings and text and follow them. You have no idea how many more miles I have to drive a semi truck because signs are redirecting me (compared to car route). And i am sure there IS a good reason they did that. So many bicyclist think they are above the law, i stop a 40 ton semi-truck at pedestrian crossing and a fakin bike just flies by people crossing it... and driving (instead of walking next to a bike) on zebras, and not stopping on red light, driving on side walk, actually anywhere they can squeeze through, like traffic laws do not apply to them. And always acting as a victim (just like in this video). Well guess what, they do, and you should get a ticket for not following them. If you think you have smarter solution for this problem do not make stupid video so you can monetize it on YouTube but create a valid documentation and hand in over to appropriate authorities. I did that once for a traffic light timing on one crossing and one year later they changed it because someone realized traffic flow will be faster. Maybe it was not my contribution at all but I like to think my letter made someone think about it because they made it exactly the way i described it. So if you are not after YouTube money just do your research, find a better solution and hand it over to authorities. Try not to do a video on that because it will again be just about money not about fixing the problem.

    Casey, this is exactly why I got out of the traffic division. Although it's rewarding to take DUI subjects off the street, I can still do that as a patrol officer and not have the headache of some jackass Sergeant asking me why I only had two tickets for the day. I couldn't write BS tickets. Two years was enough for me. I personally think we (police) have much bigger fish to fry than a bicycle ticket.

    The entitlement is strong. They can't put a lane to go straight because it crosses the pedestrian crossing. Bikes going fast down from the bridge can hit people walking across, that's why you have to turn right or left. If anything the signage should be larger that there's no going straight. And maybe better lane markings on the ground directing cyclist coming down the bridge to turn right or left. As for the ticket, the officer is right. The signs say wrong way and you went through. Just because someone else also breaks the law doesn't make you excused. They can't catch everyone, but the ticket serves to deter others from breaking the law.
