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.

This crappy picture was taken from the window of my apartment, the street in front of which is now fertile ground for the spontaneous generation of sharrows.
