Better Bikeways Signage Project by Joseph Prichard

My friend Michael emailed me these great ideas for bikeway signage by Joseph Prichard, something that Los Angeles desperately needs. The bright purple signs come in four different categories: Navigation, Caution, Connections and Points of Interest. This is already a great starting point, as the signs will be informative to people on bikes and in cars.

For drivers it makes it clear that a certain stretch of road is a place that must be shared with bike riders. While for bike riders they will hopefully feel safer riding as an area has been precisely mapped out for them. I also like the idea of signs leading to bike shops and bike-friendly places to eat as well.
