Should we just add a bunch of bike racks all over sidewalks? There might be a better way: on-street bike parkings near intersections provide more parking spaces for cyclists, they don't clutter up the sidewalks, and they improves visibility for drivers, making everybody safer. The video above by our friends over at Streetfilms shows exactly how they work and why they are so good.
