Those would be wonderful to have here.
My closest calls have been with vehicles "turning right on red". Although they're supposed to stop first, many just run the light turning into you just as described by this article; "the right hook".
This isn't a very bike or pedestrian friendly city, although there are lots of commuters and riders.

Allegedly, they're installing a few in our city. I'll report back if/when it happens and how they seem to be working.

How Does a Bike Box Work?

Has anyone ever navigated one of these...? They look very helpful and it's no surprise that "Bike boxes are even more common in Europe."

Hopefully they'll catch on here in the USA!
