One-Liner Wednesday – Share The Road!

44 Comments

These signs that say “Share the Road (with bicycles)” recently went up in the middle of some of the streets in my neighbourhood.

What they should say is “Share the Road with Bicycles except where these stupid signs are because there’s no way you’ll both fit on the road unless you’re willing to drive your car on the wrong side of the street, which isn’t a good idea at all, so go ahead and run the cyclist over.”

 


If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

  11. These remind me of the signs I once saw on a school trip to the British Museum. They were tiny and planted right in the middle of the large grassy area outside the museum where we ate our lunch.

    Because they were so small it as impossible to read them from the bench we were sitting on, so I walked over to see what they said.

    You guessed it; “Keep off the grass”

  13. Ha! Here in Buffalo, the geniuses decided to paint bicycle pictures in the middle of the right driving lane on Main Street. Most bicyclists realize that they still need to stay over along the parking lane, especially during rush hour. But there’s one young lady who consistently decides that the right driving lane is, in fact, the bicycle lane (after all the picture says so, right?), so she determinedly peddles down the middle of the lane during morning rush hour, forcing everyone to either stay behind her at 3 mph or try to merge into the already full left driving lane. I doubt that the helmet she wears is really going to protect her forever.

  21. We had some put up in the middle of the street. All that work and they had to take them down due to many complaints. More signs seldom solve problems.

    • They’re going to have to take them down for the snowplows anyway. Maybe if enough people complain they won’t put them back up again.
      And you’re right – I doubt they solve anything. Any driver who doesn’t share the road with a bike shouldn’t be driving.

  27. We don’t have those signs where I live yet, but we do we do have drivers who crowd out the bikers.
    Not so many bikers now that the snow has arrived though!
