Advisory Bike Lanes

DriveSmartBC Logo

 

There is current discussion about an Advisory Bike Lane on Richardson Street in Victoria in order to encourage more cycling than vehicle transportation. An ABL was constructed in a student dominated low volume neighbourhood  Somerset Street East in Ottawa, ON. It was built as an affordable option until the road was rebuilt. The design- two way vehicle traffic using one lane with a bike lane on each side.  How does traffic flow with an ABL?

Slow Down and Move Over

Safety Cone

Hundreds of roadside work zones will be set up across BC this summer, and every day, tens of thousands work alongside our roadways: first responders, tow truck operators, landscapers, flag people, road maintenance crews and more.

Roadside work can be dangerous. Thousands of drivers will travel through these "Cone Zones", which places roadside workers at risk. Between 2010 and 2019, 13 roadside workers were killed and 204 were injured and lost time from work as a result of being hit by a motor vehicle. "Slow down and move over it's the law" What are the laws and penalty?

Traffic Calming

DriveSmartBC LogoWhenever I make a public presentation and then open the floor to questions people always highlight the traffic problems in their neighbourhoods and ask why the police never seem to be doing anything about them. I always feel inadequate when I point out that those same problems exist everywhere in our community and the police can only be there occasionally.
