The bike lane on Vokiečių street was re-painted last week.  The white line and bicycle symbols were freshly painted white.  The white pedestrian figures with the yellow X through them are a new addition.  When I saw them, I thought that someone made a mistake and painted the pedestrian figures in the bike path instead of on the other side of the line where pedestrians are supposed to walk — and, therefore, the pedestrians were crossed out.

Today I was walking on Vokiečių with a friend and her two children.  She said to her son, “See how the people walking have a yellow X through them?  That means that you should not walk there; that lane is just for bikes.”  Oh, that makes sense!  I guess that I was the one who misunderstood.
