Case Study File: 

In order to reduce conflicts between cyclists and motorists entering the Arco gas station on Fell Street between Scott and Divisadero Street, the SFMTA painted the bike lane green. Observations taken after the addition of color showed that cars queuing to enter the gas stations were approximately 40% less likely to block the bike lane.
