Thanks for your extensive explanation of and background information on the rumble strip issue.

It is evident that, while design specs have been extensively studied and recommended, implementation thereof have not necessarily been followed for various reasons—the world is not perfect.

All the more reason for supporting off-road routes, such as rails-to-trails.  I do.  Unfortunately, rail-trails are absent in many areas of the country.

Sorry if this has been specifically discussed before.

It makes no sense for rumble strips to be installed to the right (outside) of the white line that demarcates the outside edge of the travel lane--a visual warning of the limits of travel.  It seems to me that the rumble strips, which are an auditory warning of the limit of travel, should be at the same place.

If the white line and rumble strips were at the same location, there would be more adequate room for cyclists (especially trikers) to ride on the shoulder of a road.  I've seen (can't remember where off-hand) co-location of white line and rumble strip on very few roads.  I felt much safer on those roads!

Is there any reason why they cannot be co-located?  Or, is this just the way it has always been done?
