What is a Bike Box?

Bike box info for web

A bike box is a green pavement marking installed at intersections to reduce conflicts between people bicycling and driving.

People bicycling can stop in the green box to await a green signal. People driving wait behind the green box for the signal to turn green. Bike boxes are especially helpful for bicyclists who are taking a left turn. They are safer getting in to the bike box as illustrated above.
