Obstacle Course

Friend of NS&S Molly alerts us to this sign that hangs over the striped shoulder on Beacon Street near Hammond Street waiting to decapitate a rider or, more likely, send her into traffic.

Here's Molly in her own words:

This sign sticks out into Beacon Street and is exactly at the head height of a bicyclist. Last week I was nearly decapitated/hit by a car (not sure which is worse) due to the this sign. Not only does it overhang the roadway, it is also at the point where Beacon Street narrows and the striped shoulder disappears forcing cyclists into the flow of traffic.

Yes, the little things matter.
