For a lane like this, why put the sharrow 5 feet to the left of the parked cars which seems to be about 8 feet to the right of the center lane and hence in the middle of the tire tracks and in a place where a car might be tempted to stay in the lane and pass with 1' clearance.
Why not put the sharrow right in the middle of where cars drive, so there is no hint of side-by-side sharing and no extra wear by car tires.

What do you think of this bright-line rule: If a sharrow is in the tire tracks of most cars, it probably is in the wrong place for bicycle safety as well (Saving paint can save lives).
