“What is this supposed to be ‘solving'”

Ed. Note: I believe at most locations these are intended to slow down cars that are turning.

“Dear PoPville,

Any idea what these new lane blockers are supposed to be “solving?” They were recently installed along 13th St. at Kenyon, Columbia Rd. and a few other streets. They prevent cars from going around a car that is waiting to turn left. I suppose that might be a good idea to prevent cars turning right and hitting pedestrians crossing in the crosswalk with the green light, but Kenyon and Columbia are one-way going west. So no cars would be turning right.

All it does is back up traffic along 13th st. and encourage drivers to make more risky left turns.”
