    For all the hundreds of times I've ridden through that intersection, I've NEVER noticed either sign! Funny I don't notice that, but I do remember things like the road named Buttrick Road on the Concord/Carlisle loop.

    You made me curious and I found some information about these signs in Massachusetts:

    http://www.bikexprt.com/massfacil/no...rd/ongreen.htm (including some pictures of signs)

    and

    http://www.massbike.org/skills/loop.htm

    Interesting. Hope this becomes more widespread. I have not seen anything like this in Chicago and the north shore.

    Yeah, here we just have lights that can't be triggered by a bicycle at all.

    Funny, I have seen both these recently.

    In my town, the one stoplight (new) has a square cutout in the center of the lane with a reflecty bike logo at the line, with a sign at the right that says (paraphrased) Bicycle stop at line for green. It's pretty obvious what its for. I am generally taking a right at this intersection, so haven't had to use it yet. Maybe if/when I try commuting next year. I think my husband probably has though, when he was commuting this summer.

    We were driving around when we saw the other sign wording which was Bicycles stop on green and we both had the same reaction. What does that mean???

    Now I know! Thanks!

    Sorry for the typo! I meant I sound boring!
    I live about 3 miles from Buttrick Rd. and I ride by it every time I do my "after work" loop. Yea, I think the same thing.

    Yeah, after I wrote that I suddenly got worried that someone here actually lived ON Buttrick Rd...so glad you live near it (and not on it) and also notice it, it always makes me laugh.
