What are those green boxes painted on the street?

Hamilton identifies bike boxes with white bike stencils marked in an area coloured green. A bike box is used at intersections to designate a space, in front of cars, for turning cyclists to queue at a red traffic signal.

Auto drivers are reminded to "Share the Road".

To further promote this message stop by any of the bike shops in Hamilton and pick up a free "Share the Road" car magnet to spread the message. Find out more about the Cannon Street bike lanes.
