VIDEO - Protected Intersections

VideoWhile this video is titled "Making a Community Safer for Pedestrians | A Protected Intersection" it should also include cyclists with the pedestrians as it protects them too. Local stakeholders are interviewed about the rationale for picking this intersection and why the changes that have been made work to make it safer.

I suspect that this intersection protects cyclists by moving them further away from vehicles initially and causing drivers to look to the right for a longer period of time before encroaching on the cycle lane.
