Bicycle boxes, or advance stop bars, provide a highly visible, painted area of the roadway for cyclists to wait at signalized intersections. Bike boxes are highly visible when installed and consist of a bright green area with a white bicycle symbol inside the box, located between the white stop bar and the pedestrian crosswalk. At red lights, cyclists stop in the bicycle box ahead of motor vehicle traffic, which must queue behind the bicycle box. Bicycle boxes reduce right-turn conflicts between cyclists and motor vehicles and improve safety through increased cyclist visibility at intersections.
