Signs Of The Times

leave a comment »

Here are just a few of my favorite traffic signs around town. The city of Richardson, Texas has done a lot for cyclists. Unfortunately, there’s a lot more that needs to be done before we can be considered an official Bike Friendly Community from the League of American Bicyclists. With our bike trails, bike lanes and bike friendly streets, we’re further along than most north Texas cities.

Having these signs at every major road, coming into town, is really nice too. They are a good reminder of what Texas drivers should already know about using Texas roads.

Visual Communication – Bike Signage In My Neighborhood

Bike Route

In addition to all the new bike lanes and multi-purpose trails that are available in Richardson, Texas – there are now some new bike signs going up.

Maybe it’s because they’re new or maybe because they do a better job at visually communicating to road users, but I feel these are working harder to promote cycling awareness than the old signs seen around Dallas (see below).

Aside from stating the obvious, these signs are letting folks know that Richardson is a bike friendly city and that they recognize that there are all types of riders, that use all types of routes.
