Double Yellow Line

Empire Street

Empire Street

A double yellow line is one of the most basic traffic control devices we have, yet… I watched driver after driver get it to a point, then move across the double yellow into the oncoming traffic lane.

Pay attention on Empire and Weybosset, because some people aren’t grasping the concept.

    As if Providence drivers need another excuse to be bad.

    It looks so beautiful!

    Though I remember when Washington went two-way and I was one of the first to go down in the new direction, people were honking and yelling at me saying it was a one-way! Even after weeks of signs noting the route change. haha Oh Providence!

    They should probably put up some of those 2-way traffic signs with the arrows pointing up and down. Maybe that’ll help? They won’t need to be permanent, but for the first couple of months, it might be good.

    what does that bike sign say? there does not look like there is enough room on either of those roads for bikes.

    Matt, it says “Bikes May Use Full Lane.” I wrote about it last night here.

    In the interest of fairness, its difficult to adapt to a change when you’re used to doing something the same way for a long time. I was just walking past the street and the two way traffic seemed disorienting.
