Red means “stop,” and green means “go,” but now, green also means “stop running into bicyclists, you a-hole.” In reaction to a rash of mismatched run-ins between cars and bikes, city officials have enacted a plan to increase safety in troublesome areas for bikers, making bike lanes more visible to speeding traffic.
Because painting the lanes red would be morbidly redundant, the city instead opted for a greener approach, at least color-wise. Freshly shellacked “conflict zones” can be found on Genesee Avenue near the intersection of Balboa Avenue, on Nimitz Boulevard in Point Loma and on Montezuma road near SDSU.
