Bike lane buffer zones are becoming increasingly popular as a way of protecting cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists alike. A buffered bike lane is one that is already separated from regular traffic and parking. A bike lane buffer zone is a zone between the parking or travel areas for cars where motorists can safely get in and out of their cars without encountering cyclists in the bike lane. Streetfilms recently had a nice post and video about why this extra space is great for all types of road users and provides some encouragement for how these will become commonplace in the future.
