However, the stretch between B and F St. is especially narrow and residents put out toters for waste, recycling and yard clippings. There should be no yard waste piles on this section. High volumes of commuters, business-truck owners/contractors, delivery vehicles and UNITRANS use this section. Cycling lanes are marked but the well-posted 25 MPH speed limit is largely ignored by those hurrying between lights.<br> + <br> + The intersection of E. 8th and B Streets is dicey for several reasons. It is rather problematic and has had several collisions and there are many near-misses. First, five different elementary and secondary schools are within a two-block radius, plus the Public Library. That means TONS of cyclists traverse through here each day. Secondly, as commute traffic lines up in the morning, lanes back up since there is but only one left-turn lane (a free left-turn on westbound E. 8th to southbound B). Some motorists dodge around left-turners who are blocking their passage and use the bike lanes. City officials claim that the traffic signal control unit is one of the oldest in town and cannot handle a controlled left-turn phase. If it helps, this is the corner where the ["Davis Lutheran Church"] is located.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> East 8th Streethttp://daviswiki.org/East_8th_Street2011-09-15 11:14:31fknochenhauerUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/East_8th_Street?action=Files&do=view&target=cutoffcyclist.JPG">cutoffcyclist.JPG</a>.East 8th Streethttp://daviswiki.org/East_8th_Street2011-09-15 10:58:33fknochenhauerUpload of image <a href="http://daviswiki.org/East_8th_Street?action=Files&do=view&target=carcrash.JPG">carcrash.JPG</a>.East 8th Streethttp://daviswiki.org/East_8th_Street2011-09-14 23:10:45fknochenhauerUpload of file <a href="http://daviswiki.org/East_8th_Street?action=Files&do=view&target=E.%208th%20%26%20B%20St.">E. 8th & B St.</a>.East 8th Streethttp://daviswiki.org/East_8th_Street2010-06-27 13:49:35JasonAllerDaubert, I choose to start with the streets! <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for East 8th Street<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 61: </td> <td> Line 61: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- <br> - [[Comments]]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> East 8th Streethttp://daviswiki.org/East_8th_Street2009-02-23 19:43:53JasonAller <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for East 8th Street<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 11: </td> <td> Line 11: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Before East 8th St. was built, Cemetery Road extended from ["G Street"] east across the ["railroad tracks"] to the ["Davis Cemetery"].

Then ["UCD"] Professor ["Bob Sommer"] brought the idea to city planners in the mid 60s. The initial design was a success, and became the standard bike lane design for the rest of Davis, California. At first, bike lanes only went from ["Sycamore Lane"] to ["B Street"], then later from ["J Street"] to ["Pole Line Road"]. The gap from B Street to L Street was too narrow for bike lanes and parking. Eventually, daytime parking was banned, then parking was permanently banned, and now 8th Street is easily the best street to go across town. Had the parkers won a victory in 1970, it would be much more dangerous for bicyclists. 8th Street now has bike lines for its entire length, and specific bicyclist-operated traffic signals at the intersections with ["L Street"] and ["B Street"].<br> + <br> + Be careful bicycling through the ["F Street"] intersection on 8th Street. There are no left turn lanes for cars, so a bicyclist can be hidden behind a same-direction-car while approaching the light, and then hit by a left turner in the opposite direction after the same-direction car has passed. Or, if you are passing a car that is waiting to turn left, you are hidden from view and may have opposing left turners turn in front of you or hit you. Several serious, nearly fatal accidents have occurred this way in recent years.<br> + <br> + Before East 8th St. was built, Cemetery Road extended from ["G Street"] east across the ["railroad tracks"] to the ["Davis Cemetery"].
