"Sharrows and High Traffic"

I have a love/hate relationship with Oak Street. It's significantly safer for a bicyclist than Park Street (parallel one block over) and you can get anywhere downtown without waiting for a car to trip the weight sensor on the lights.

It's still just too crowded. There are sharrows (arrows on the street that help remind motorists to actively share the road with cyclists) but they just don't seem to cut down on the aggressive driving.

Being so close to downtown means that people are looking for a parking spot more than they're looking for a cyclist who has taken the lane, so be careful.
