Great Going City of Coppell

The signage in the picture below can be seen on South Coppell Road in Coppell, Texas. For those who may not know, Coppell is a small suburb of Dallas. With the recent boom in traffic in Dallas-Fort Worth, bicycling in the thick of traffic has become somewhat tedious.

On a recent commute, I saw the signage in the picture and was pleasantly surprised to see it, as I often commute on a bicycle in Coppell and surrounding areas.
I also noticed similar signage on not just less busy roads, but also on very busy roads like Sandy Lake and Beltline. Now, this is good news for cyclists.

I am not saying such signage is a must for one to bicycle on our streets. At least now, the bicyclist need not pull out the Traffic Rules booklet to explain his/her lane position to a skeptical automobile driver :)

Happy Trails :)

  1. looks like a safe road for biking...we have some very narrow winding roads here that when i see bikers on them i worry for their safety!

  3. A great idea, but I hope any angry car drivers can read! Some of them hate to share. With pedestrians too!
