I would like to start out by saying yes, I'm guilty as charged. So often I wish that the rhetoric online was a little less..."complaint-driven", if you will. Especially when it comes to the Treasure Valley. This area is my home and it will be for the rest of my life-- but we've got to talk about these downtown Boise lanes.

You may recall that a summer or two ago, many people online commented about the same issue: these street lanes do NOT match up. After noticing that crews have been refreshing pavement around Downtown Boise's streets--I laughed and thought to myself: "maybe the lanes will match up now".

Well, I was wrong.

While driving through downtown Boise this afternoon, we captured a photo of just how NOT "in-line" these lanes are.

In the particular instance pictured, we understand that the left lane has a turn option...but it certainly doesn't end! Optically, however, it almost always causes a knee-jerk reaction to swerve!

If you need a closer look, take a peak at this FULL SIZED image that we were able to capture, below. Zoom into those lines past the light!

I'm not sure who planned these lanes or frankly, who painted them, but please tell me I am not the only person that is going crazy with how poorly they're lined up.

Then again, maybe I should just stop complaining...
