A car hogging the bike lane. While that may be something New Yorkers see everyday, the car above has a specific purpose. It is testing the comfort rating of the bike lanes in the city of Aarhus.
Using laser technology and a specially designed car, the bike lanes are measured for bumps and smoothness, among other factors.
Citizens have often said that the quality of the bike lanes is of utmost importance when they're considering whether or not to commute by bike.
The city of Aarhus will use the results of the comfort tests to plan strategy and prioritising maintenence. A company in Glostrup, Dynatest, is responsible for carrying out the tests for Aarhus city council.
Yet another example of bike lane infrastructure vehicles at work. A previous example is the dedicated bike lane cleaners.
