As a bicyclist, must I ride over the Sharrows?
No, the markings simply indicate where bicyclists would be expected to ride under ordinary conditions. If bicyclists are turning left, passing other cyclists, avoiding potholes, etc., they may position themselves away from the markings. Also, if cars are not parked along the cub, bicyclists may ride well to the right of the markings - but, cyclists should not weave in and out between parked cars.
