Second Street safety targeted

It's safer to ride in the middle of the street than directly behind cars that are parked diagonally, city officials say. Sue Cockrell/Enterprise photoA bicyclist pedals over a newly painted "sharrow" roadway marking on Second Street in downtown Davis. The "shared use arrows" were stenciled Tuesday on Second from B to H streets as part of a trial program designed to increase bicycle safety and convenience on Second Street. The sharrows are painted on a bicycle route or a shared roadway to assist bicyclists with positioning in the roadway and to alert motorists of the space a bicyclist may occupy, said Tara Goddard, the city's bicycle and pedestrian coordinator.
