I think I'll just take the lane ... Lamar and Morrow

/u/garblesnarky shows us a lovely example of some poorly thought-out paint on reddit.

New sidewalk mural celebrating bike infrastructure
Just kidding, actually it's a bike lane designed by someone who has never seen a wheel before.
Is there a good way to report this to the city as inappropriate?
This is on Morrow at Lamar. It's only like 50 feet long, but WHYYY

What's gratifying is seeing the outrage on Reddit.  25 years ago there wasn't really any transportation cycling community here.  (And no world wide web to bitch on.)

That intersection is just plain cursed. But, as long as ATD keeps doing stupid things, the guys who do the actual work will always have a chance to - bring home the bacon.

KXAN has a picture showing the other side as well.  I think it is even worse. https://www.kxan.com/news/local/austin/ … ike-lanes/

Yep, these changes are just lipstick on a pig.

The reddit post does show the other side too, but it's an imgur gallery and so people often miss that there's more than one picture ...
