Seattle is without doubts one of America’s leaders in sustainable planning. Along the city’s efforts to promote sustainability in its population and visitors, they have implemented a great system of bicycle routes (map available printed and in pdf).
As it can be noted on the pictures above (taken by me four days ago 04/21/15), the bike lanes are separated from cars and pedestrians along the streets, and their continuation on intersections are noted by green paint on pavement. They also have their own traffic signals. It is important to note that not every single street in Seattle is this way, there are some areas where bicyclists have to share street lanes with cars; which is noted with the shared lane sign painted on the road.
