The Question:

The above picture shows a car passing an oncoming bicyclist in an adjacent lane. On the pavement is a bike symbol with two chevrons or arrows. What does this mean?

The Answer: SHARROW

A “sharrow” is literally a “shared lane arrow”. It is used on streets where bike lanes are not feasible and/or to alert other road users that bicyclists are likely to be using the lane. The intent of “sharrows” is to inform and encourage motorists and bicyclists to share the road.
