Cycling Claremont: Infrastructure...

The helpful traffic button specifically designed for cyclists pictured here is on Eighth Street crossing Indian Hill Blvd. Diagonally across Indian Hill lies Memorial Park, the city's primary civic space (site of summer concerts, 4th of July, Easter and the like). On many streets this might lead to right hook conflicts, if after pressing the button a cyclist were to remain against the curb. But Eighth Street is a low traffic street and a cyclist will have little trouble moving back left, into the lane, in anticipation of the signal change. What would work especially well with this type of crossing device would be a green box on the street adjacent to it.
