Are Bike Lanes Safer?

This video, which is the winner of the Bike Shorts bike film series being shown in Brooklyn, NYC, debates whether or not a new bike lane is actually safer. The video brings up some interesting issues associated with bike lanes – for example, being used as parking by delivery trucks – to show that, in the case of the bike lane being examined, it is probably not safer than riding with traffic. In general, the video raises some interesting questions about what makes for “safer” cycling in an urban environment and what the challenges are to urban cyclists.
