Cycling in Gibsons – Frequently Asked Questions

What do the painted symbols on the road mean?

Photo from School Road
These are called ‘Sharrows’ (think ‘Share Arrows’). When these symbols are marked in the middle of the lane as they are on the downhill section of School Road, cyclists and motorized vehicles merge with each other single file. When lane widths permit, sharrows are marked off to the side of a lane indicating that cyclists are to position themselves to the side of the lane, allowing enough room for other vehicles to pass safely.
Photo from Glassford/Gower Point intersection
A white diamond painted on the road surface marks reserved lanes. Reserved lane signs are also placed over or beside lanes that are reserved for certain types of transit, for example cyclists or buses. Cars must refrain from driving in these reserved lanes.

Why has the Town eliminated on-street parking on School Road?
Although vehicles on occasion parked on School Road, vehicles were not legally parked as traffic was forced over the centre line to pass any parked vehicles.

Can I park in the bike lane while I am waiting to pick up my children from school?
No, it is not legal to park in a bike lane, even if you remain with your vehicle.
Bylaw Enforcement will be ticketing illegally parked vehicles. Please note that you cannot park on the sidewalks either.
