“In newsletter No. 438 [Road Bike Rider] offered an idea for tweaking the “Share the Road” signs seen along some U.S. highways and byways. Missourian Paul Scianna proposed adding the phrase “It’s the Law” to make sure drivers realize that giving cyclists some space is not merely a suggestion. But what if your local roads don’t have basic “Share the Road” signs, or there are too few? What can you do about that?
Roadie Peter Paul Bud has an answer — commit your local bike club to buying the signs on the condition that the highway department will put them where they’ll do the most good. That is, along favorite cycling roads in the area.”
