Sparrow lanes' 

Once again, Oklahoma City has gotten close, but not close enough. According to Clifton Adcock's Nov. 10 "'Sharrow' the road" article in the Oklahoma Gazette, "sharrow lanes" were so named because of the combination of "share" and "arrow."

More accurately, they should be named "sparrow lanes." That's a combination of "splat" and "arrow." With the aggressively driving people who run stop signs/stoplights, use cell phones and text while driving, "splat" will be the first notice these drivers have that someone else was in the lane.
