A multi-year study of bike-involved collisions at Portland intersections that have bike boxes has returned mixed results showing only minimal reductions in collisions at some intersections and increases at others. The results have prompted the city to rethink some of … Continue reading

SDOT announced today the official arrival of the bike box at E Pine and 12th that we reported about earlier. Right turns on red by motor vehicles are restricted, and new signs will help all road users understand the facilities. … Continue reading
