  1. Look what I found! Comics! We think your car is pretty darn good, Rich. But what are sharrows? Are they like bike boxes?

  2. Related. Sharrows are street markings that depict where bikes travel. Living in Portland, I imagine you've seen quite a few of them:

  3. Ah, I see. I don't think the sharrows ever really took off, partly because the separate, marked bike lanes are fairly ubiquitous out here. (But we've still had far too many bicyclist deaths).
