At cycle crossings such as intersections, turn lanes, or in front of driveways, markings should be applied to the roadway that alert drivers and cyclists to potential conflict areas and guide cyclists across intersections.
Specific markings vary by location, but these areas should differ visually from the standard lane markings to highlight changing conditions to street users. Typically, dashed markings are used when cycle lanes are painted, and solid markings are used when cycle lanes are non-painted.
Conflict zone markings increase yielding behavior of motorists and emphasize the equal standing of cyclists within the street. Markings should continue all the way through the conflict area and at each conflict area along the corridor, such as at driveways.
