You don't think that it has anything to do with the population of the

They have a higher population in just your neighborhood in Bangkok don't they? I was just looking at a couple of pictures of Bangkok yesterday and damned if I could see any bike traffic. Of course it was in the downtown area.


Well, yes. the population of Bangkok is in excess of 5 million. :-)
But the discussion you responded to was commenting on the number of
automobiles shown in a photo and speculating on whether this was a
factor of the total number of people who lived in the place.


Actually, I suggested that the lack of traffic and parked automobiles
might have been a result of the 3D crosswalk art. I also speculated
that there was plenty of traffic before they were installed, and that
all the drivers fled from the area when they saw the 3D pavement art,
possibly to avoid accidentally ramming the blocks. It seems that most
of the online photos and graphic simulations are devoid of
automobiles.

It is written that anything worth doing, is also worth overdoing:

Maybe that will work on a dedicated bicycle lane. However, I still
prefer a brick wall border.


Apparently it was one painting in one small town:

"In the small fishing town of safjrur, Iceland, an exciting
development in road safety has just popped up, almost literally. A
new pedestrian crossing has been painted that appears to be 3D by way
of a cleverly-detailed optical illusion.
Icelandic environmental commissioner Ralf Trylla called for its
placement in safjrur after seeing a similar project being carried
out in New Delhi, India."

The Wiki tells us that the population of safjrur, Iceland, is
2,600 people. You can see a photo of the town center at

I'd rather have "protected" bike lanes like the following if you really
need one:

The above URL redirects me to:
https://www.commonslabantwerpen.org/activiteiten/?offset=1524575876543
The bicycle lane slide show is about 2/3 of the way down the page.

This protected bike lane?

Are you sure this is what you would rather have?
If yes, we both think alike.

It's a very useful device. When not acting as an automobile deterrent
or deflector to protect the bicycle lane, I use them for a kickstand:

Just clamp to the top tube and lean the bicycle over slightly. I was
thinking of applying for a patent but was convinced that the cost of
the patent was more than the probably license revenue.
