Yes, it looks very nice being all open, but you need something big at the ends so people don't drive there.Yup. Needs bright green paint or bollards at the beginning and end of each block.
I have seen several people recently drive down the bike lane on 106 St and Jasper. It does have the green paint and sticks, but the problem is people are used to turning into the right most lane and it is wide enough for a vehicle.
I think people get confused and don't process the signage - especially people who are not used to driving downtown or maybe from out of town.
