I am curious why you object to the sharrows in this situation. Isn't it better than nothing? The fog line leaving a narrow gutter was clearly not a bike lane and at least the sharrow indicates to drivers that bikes may be using the road and that their presence is expected and encouraged. In an urban setting, the sharrow communicates to bikes that they should ride further into the lane, but in a suburban setting...what are the best practices? I am looking to promoting cycling in my New England town and we do not have room for bike lanes. We have an opportunity to re-paint the fog lines following recent repaving, but perhaps sharrows would be better. It is a 2-lane road, very rural in character, but only 25 feet wide in many places and 35-40mph speed limit.
