Bike sign mistake cost’s city thousands

To become a more bike friendly city, Oklahoma City, took part in posting signs to tell drivers to share the road with cyclists.
At the end of last year they began to install the signs only to find out they weren’t in compliance with new federal language on signage. In essence, they left out an important word…

“The signs say ‘use full lane.’ The new signs will say ‘may use full lane,'” explains Oklahoma City Councilman Bowman.

Also, the city council recently learned the city ordinance needed some work as well due to it currently making it difficult to prosecute drivers not giving cyclists enough feet of space.

All in all, a good effort to improve the well being of cyclists in Oklahoma City, tough, at a price tag of $18,000.
