Those Spaniards are very motorcycle friendly, and progressive thinking. The authorities have started placing special areas in front of traffic lights for motorcycles.

These areas will allow bikes to go to the front and have an area reserved for motorcycles, the way some countries do for bicycles. It's a much safer way to start from a light for motorcycles, and cars will not be hindered, since as we all know, motorcycles accelerate faster than cars.

Barcelona Click for map was the first to install a special box for motorcycle, between the white "stop" line and the pedestrian crossing.

On the photo, you can see the "do not stand here" marking saying "Except Motorcycles".

Madrid Click for map followed recently, with their own version:

Less obtrusive, but the result is still there, a place to be away from cages when you're at the light.

Thank you Spain for showing the way. Let's hope other countries follow. Thumb Up Smiley
