My point exactly. Thank you. There might be some truth to the point that cell phones and other modern distractions make rumble strips more necessary. I wouldn't even think about riding a bicycle on a busy public roadway these days, and I used to do it all the time.

Still not sure why you singled out my post that I thought was fairly critical of strips too close to the roadway. No one likes to hit them and I am fairly certain most drivers attempt to avoid them.

Good luck with getting the ones in your neighborhood moved further from the roadway.

Rumble strips are a great training device as well as a life saving one.

White line/rumble strips.......not suppose to drive on either
Stay IN your lane and the drive will be quieter, less annoying


Drift onto white line/rumble strips and little blue lights may be your next rant.

Iím all in with you on that!
You tread over to be farther (and safer) from oncoming traffic and I hit the shaker machine which causes my wife to tell me to wake up and to keep my eyes on the road!
I really appreciate them for when I am getting tired. But they should be on the outer edge of the yellow shoulder line. Two knocks on that and I automatically find a place to pull over, thatís our rule.

I'm an avid cyclist AND an RV owner. So I know both sides of this. The rumble strips should be under the white line. That way it leaves me room to ride AND it is a 'some what' of a safety devise keeping the cars in the/their lane.


Now, the down side is that all the glass, metal, parts of cars (that people litter), gravel, etc is in my riding space. Before RS all that debris was picked up/kicked away by cars, trucks and RV's that didn't stay in the lane. Now I have to ride through it.



My thought is: That if people don't like the RS 'under' the white (fog) line it's because it just shows/keeps reminding them that they are not a very good driver... They can not keep their vehicle in the center of the traffic lane.

I hate rumble strips because they distract my texting.
