Portland (Oregon) Bike Boxes and the Law


If you drive in Portland, you need to know about the Bike Boxes and the Law:

From the Portland Online website:

It is a green box on the road with a white bicycle symbol inside. It includes green bicycle lanes approaching and leading from the box…” (link to full page).

My previous OLR posts on bikes, motorcycles, and feet, here and here, here and here (and arguably here).
