I regularly travel down Lilac (between Corydon and Grosvenor) and
often see cyclists riding too close to the parked cars. This is
because they do not feel comfortable riding in the traffic lane, so
they stick to the right side of the line that separates the parked
cars from the traffic lane.
Therefore, it would be great for cycling safety and comfort if the
traffic lane could be narrowed to make the parking lane wider, and
hence allow more space for cyclists to avoid the door prize.
I measured the traffic lane as 11 feet wide in one direction, and 12
feet wide in the other. What would be the minimum lane width for a
street like Lilac? 10 feet?
