Sharrows, or share the street arrows, added to Shreveport streets by Caddo Comissioner Matthew Linn and members of A Better Shreveport
Thank you for allowing Dr. Hallie Dozier of L.S.U., myself and friends
to paint sharrows on certain streets marking safe bicycle passage from South Highland to Downtown Shreveport. These markings are very
inexpensive to apply and bring priceless, heightened awareness that
something other than an automobile is allowed on the street. When
people who are only accustomed to driving a car or truck are informed of the new "Louisiana 3 foot law", they will be grateful to have a
friendly reminder of being respectful to bicyclist.
The template of the "Bicycle Sharrow" has been donated to "A Better
Shreveport." I encourage everyone to work together to make our home, Shreveport, easier and safer to navigate by all means of transportation.
Caddo Parish Commissioner, District 4
It is my pleasure. As mayor and as a citizen I welcome Shreveport becoming a more biker, runner and walker friendly city. Please pass my thanks along to all involved and let's keep forging ahead.
