Portland, Ore. – Innovative Bicycle Signal

Portland's Office of Transportation (PDOT) goes the extra mile to accommodate cyclists. Rex Burkholder, the Metro Counsellor and founder of the the Bicycle Transportation Alliance (BTA), explains how to operate this bike signal placed at an intersection that is potentially hazardous to cyclists. The light gives riders a dedicated signal which maximizes safety and allows the convenience of having to wait through only one signal pattern.
