This image is a bike box. It helps bicyclists make a left turn at signalized intersections and helps discourage motorists from making a right turn across the path of bicyclists going straight thru an intersection.

This is a queue box, which helps bicyclists make a two-stage left turn, first across to the far side of the intersection, then stop and turn 90 degrees, and then when the light changes to green for the cross street, to exit the intersection to the left. The queue box gives a bicyclist a noticeable place to position themselves while waiting for the light to change.

* 8. Would you like to see a queue box installed at any challenging intersections along Geary Blvd?

* 9. Do you have any other comments or ideas for improving Geary Road for bicycling?
