True, the Right Tool for the Right Job.

... That said, some special considerations -- if you have two separate parking protected bike lanes on the same road, you have less space for the dooring zone, as you now need two dooring zones.

Parking protected lanes on just one side can work very well in certain places where the lanes abut more useful infrastructure (e.g. easier turns to perpendicular bike infrastructure, more parks are on one side of street, more industrials on one side versus storefronts, etc..)

And for roads too narrow to have separate set of parking protected bike lane with big enough dooring zones, it's now better to just create a full bona-fide cycle track and upgrade it to full green paint infrastructure and a dooring zone wide enough to eventually install a bike-lane-protection curb or bump in. I've seen some of them get "the green paint full cycle infrastructure treatment" over time, something that wouldn't have been as easy if they were on separate sides of the street.
