Downtown Orlando bike lanes go green

Have you seen the leprechaun treatment on some of downtown Orlando’s bike lanes?

The green paint is intended to increase the visibility of bicyclists, in a pilot program studying whether the colorful lanes will reduce car/bike traffic crashes. It’s also hoped that drivers won’t park in a lane so obviously marked for people on two wheels.

Billy Hattaway, transportation director for the City or Orlando and BWCF board chair, told WFTV the city is focusing on “highlighting the bike lanes in areas where there’s a lot of traffic.”

Bonus: Claiming “I didn’t see the bike lane” is a lot tougher when the lane is the color of Kermit the Frog.
