So, for those of you who don't know what a sharrow is, (okay I'll admit I didn't know exactly what one was, but basically had a pretty good idea) they are paintings on the road indicating that cyclists will be riding on that road. They are really there for drivers, so they know they must SHARE the road with cyclists.
Anyhow, there have been sharrows painted on Westholme, and I've heard reports of other sharrows being painted around the city. The main premise seems to be that if you ride on the sharrows you will not be "doored", as the sharrows are required to be painted 11 feet from the curb (LADOT Pilot Program paints them 12 feet from the curb)
Anyway, check out the LADOT Blog post, its quite informative.
