Oh hey look, sharrows!!
While I was at the park this afternoon, reading and watching the dogs play, 'sharrows' appeared on Lark Street. A sharrow, simply put, is an arrow telling cars to share. The road, that is, with bicycles. I suppose it remains to be seen how well this will work in a city where cars will not yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Still, steps like this are a welcome sign in Albany.
