Road diet(redirected from Lane diets)
A technique of transportation planning in which the width of a road or lane is narrowed in order to achieve improvements to the transportation system. A typical road diet technique is to reduce the number of lanes on a roadway cross section. The additional space that is freed up by removing a vehicular lane can be converted into two bike lanes on either side of the roadway.
