A bike box is a designated area at the head of a traffic lane at a signalized intersection that provides cyclists with a safe and visible way to get ahead of queuing traffic during a red-light signal. Bike boxes are identifiable to drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians by a green road marking. Bike boxes increasing visibility of cyclists and help both cyclists and drivers to share the road.
