The newly repaved Esplanade in Redondo Beach has moved the bike lane out of the door zone, with a buffered space created. I would love to see this style of bike lane replace the state minimum garbage, especially on streets with high parking turn over. Main St. in Santa Monica, Ocean Ave., and Broadway Ave. are all places that could really benefit from something like this. Or we could actually enforce laws against careless door opening already on the books and take the matter seriously, like they do in some countries. Since I'm not holding my breath for any American government to really hold drivers accountable for their actions anytime soon, if ever, we should at least give a cyclists a little extra room the dolts swinging their doors around without looking.
