bike box

(名詞) (十字路口的) 腳踏車停等區。

引句:
Located at the entrance of the intersection, a bike box is a demarcated area that straddles the bike lane plus one or two vehicle lanes, and is basically designed to give cyclists a head start when the light turns green. Well-used in Europe, bike boxes can't work without right-on-red restrictions.
—John Lorinc, "Toronto's worst intersection?," The Globe and Mail, June 13, 2010

A few days earlier, the Republican state representative from Whitewater had threatened legislation to ban the European-style, made-with-tape pavement markers the city has installed at the intersection where John Nolen Drive meets Williamson, Wilson and Blair streets. Nass denounced the "bike boxes" — intended to minimize conflict between drivers and bicyclists — as the product of Madison's anti-car culture.
