COLUMN: 3 things Greater Cincinnati cyclists need beyond 3-foot law - Insider - Story |
The idea behind the "share the road" mentality was to illustrate the oft-forgotten reality that bicycles aren't just road-legal vehicles: They're required by law -- with very little exception -- to utilize the roadway.

The problem with "share the road," though, is that it portrays a mixed message. On one hand, it could convey to motorists that they will see cyclists on the road, and that's where they mutually belong. On the other hand, it can also convey to motorists that bicycles should get out of their way. Most commonly, "getting out of the way" would mean either moving to the shoulder -- often littered with dangerous debris -- or moving to the sidewalk -- always against the law.

"Bicycle May Use Full Lane," however, conveys a direct and clear message that bicycles should be treated like any other road-legal vehicle. In the sense that, when passing, drivers should treat bicycles like they would another automobile.
