What The Hell Are These? People keep asking me as if I know everything. I know a lot, but not this. Can anyone tell me what is the purpose of the green squares on the newly redesigned Coast Hwy. lane #2?


Liz Swain July 10, 2013 @ 4:33 p.m.

Ken, When I rode the free bus from the Solana station to the fair, the driver said those squares are for bicyclists. Some of us passengers were doubtful, but a male passenger said that cyclists ride in packs and this helped them do that. It still didn't seem to make sense; I'll watch this page to see what others say.
