Wodan11: People have trouble figuring out the lanes and merging when there are just two lanes. I can't imagine a 5-lane multihighway with cars all over the place. Half the people not able to figure out what's where and at any given time a half dozen self-entitled asshats trying to shave 5 seconds off their commute by jumping queues.
Solid State Vittles: lohphat: Like the NB 280/19th ave split in Daly City.The overhead signs show the lane alignment you can see from a distance then the lane lines shift one to the right as you approach the sign causing panic and last minute lane changes.Apparently there's no IQ test for CalTrans workers.This one gets complicated by people like me making the big sweep from right to left to get to 19th Ave. after going to In-N-Out.
me texan: Sadly this article is right on target. I get on the freeway in downtown san francisco and literally there are no lanes at all. its pretty crazy, even at 7:00am in the morning.They finally started putting lane stripes down at the onramp right before the picture in this article. You heard it on Fark first.
ZAZ: Those little sticky note size lane dots are what we get in Massachusetts for long periods during paving. Send a crew to grind off the old pavement. Let drivers use the rough lanes for a month. Add a layer of pavement to one of the four lanes. Wait a week. Pave half the second lane. Continue for a while. After the paving is done, wait a few more weeks and lay down the permanent lane markings.Mass DOT changes the formula for lane markings. Two popular mixes are the "dissolves asphalt" thermoplastic popular about ten years ago and the "fades away" stripes popular most of the rest of the time. The former kind leaves lanes well demarcated by lines of craters. The second kind is OK during dry daytime driving but if it's raining you'll have to guess where the lanes are. Fortunately we're good at guessing, apparently much better than California drivers.
