Absolutely terrible design! I almost hit a cyclist this past weekend coming up from behind me while I was turning left.

"It should come as no surprise that the absolute number of vehicle-bicycle collisions has gone up since the cycle track was installed,"

The bicycle lane that's going west bound with car traffic should be on the RIGHT side of the road, not the LEFT. It's the equivalent of having a left hand turning lane for a car on the right side of the road, so you have to cross same-direction traffic.

No wonder traffic accidents have increased!! It's not intuitive to look what's coming BEHIND/BESIDE you when turning left in a car.

On-coming bike direction on the left side of the road and same direction bike traffic on the right.

Great that people are using it but it's a shitty unsafe design.
