About Rumble Strips & Cyclists
Share your photos of rumble strips here. We’re looking for examples of good rumble strips and bad rumble strips.
Tagging: Please tag your photos with goodrumble or badrumble to help us sort them easily (see below for definition of good and bad rumbles). Please also tag them with the type of road (state highway, freeway, county or township road) and its designation, the closest community, and state.
Special note: The Federal Highway Administration has asked us to help them incorporate more of these good examples in their publications, presentations, and online resources. If you’re willing to let FHWA and Adventure Cycling use your photos in our print and digital communications, please tag your images with our web address: wwwadventurecyclingorg. (We assume that any image in our groups with this tag is okay to use in these ways.) Of course, we will include a complete Flickr photo credit and a link back to the original image (for digital communications), per the Flickr Community Guidelines, and we hope that you get a bunch of exposure for your great work! Thanks for your support!
Good rumble strips: please post photos of rumble strips that accommodate cyclists, which means:
•Rumble Strips should be no more that 12" (preferably under 12") wide
•Provide gaps for cyclists to cross over the shoulder into the travel lane
•Rumble Strips hug the white line
•Provide 4 ft or more of clear shoulder to accommodate cyclists on the shoulder
Bad rumble strips: While we want to demonstrate to road agencies across the U.S. what a good rumble strip looks like, we know there are plenty of bad ones
that make comfortable cycling on our roads impossible. Please post photos of bad rumbles for cyclists, which include:
* Rumble Strips that are more that 12" wide
* Continuous Rumble Strips that do not provide gaps for cyclists to
cross over the shoulder into the travel lane
* Rumble Strips that stray from white (fog) line and take up usable should
* Rumble strips that do not leave 4 ft of clear shoulder to
accommodate cyclists on the shoulder
