BIKE BOXES  |  A bike box is pavement painting at an intersection designed to prevent bicycle and car collisions, especially between drivers turning right and bicyclists traveling straight. A striped box with a white bicycle symbol inside is painted on the road before a stop light or sign. The boxes include the bicycle lanes approaching the box. Bicyclists stop in the bike box to be most visible to motorists while they wait for the signal.

Long Beach has bicycle box treatments on the left-hand turn lane from Marina to 2nd Street and on 2nd Street and Bayshore (for those heading west) right across from the start of the green lane/sharrows.
