For a late night (early morning?) laugh. I especially appreciate the shoaler boxes. 

She did forget to include a lane for miniature bikes, though!

All it needs is a track-stand wobble zone, with a big buzzer that goes off if it detects a foot on the ground.

What's a shoaler?

From BSNYC:

If you stop at a red light and there is already another cyclist waiting at it, you must stop your bicycle in front of the rider who is already there.

As far as I know, I am the only cyclist in New York who does not observe this rule, because while I'm quite happy to queue up behind somebody at an intersection, I have never, ever had somebody stop behind me. If you're waiting, someone will pull up ahead of you. If a third person comes, they'll roll ahead and stop in front of the second person. On a busy day, this accumulation results in sort of a shoal of cyclists which juts out into the middle of the street like a sandbar of idiocy

I didn't see this. Awesome. Yes. Track-stand show-down.

Love it!

And another lane for what I do: slow down, time the light and then hit it when it changes green for you.  My goal is always to get where I'm going without putting my feet on the ground, even if that means going slowly when I won't make a light.  I regularly have little leap-frog dual: someone passes me on, say, Damen.  They are stopped at the next light, I go through it in gear while they gear up, zip past me and . . . are stopped at the next light waiting when I pass them as the light changes (waiting for intersection to clear, of course) and then they pass me. . . and are waiting at the next light.  We end up where we're both going at the same time, but I never stop pedaling.
