Taken by Adam Hunt on July 23rd, originally posted publicly on his Diaspora account. We’ll let the photographer explain the context in his own words:
This is a view of the bike pathway – pedestrian intersection at the Bayview O-Train station in Ottawa.
I have posted photos before showing how the city managed to design a busy bike pathway that intersects a very busy pedestrian access to the Bayview train station. This photo shows what seems to be their solution to the very high collision hazard – a “yield” sign and some paint markings. of course cyclists in this city are famous for always obeying signs, so we are safe now, right?
This won’t be an issue until the end of August as the train is out of service right now for track work, but it could be tense when the trains come back on line and the crowds reappear, especially as the cyclists have had three months of zooming though the signs with no pedestrian traffic to think about.
Is Adam correct in his perception and expectations?
