I didn’t know that the majority of bicycle – vehicle collisions occur at intersections.  Bike boxes create a safe way for bicyclists turning left to better position themselves with car traffic.  The boxes improve cyclists' visibility and reduce delay by providing space for "jumping the queue" of waiting vehicles.  Bike boxes like the one featured in this video is a unique idea that really improves safety for Austin cyclists.  Producer – Jonathan Uhl
