It would be great to see the city start utilizing minimum vehicle lane widths instead of minimum bike lane widths all the time. Two great examples are Stonechurch Road and Lawrence Road. The centre turning lanes on both streets are like small airport runways. A complete and utter waste of space. I ride the Lawrence bike lanes regularly and cars always pass me in the turning lane because the bike lane is so narrow they feel uncomfortable staying in their lane.

Both Stonechurch and Lawrence could be repainted like this:

Imagine the difference in safety for all users of the road with this design instead of our painted lanes of minimum width?
