A new road sign in Taipei

Can you guess it's meaning? No it's not a rain shelter for bikers. It could be "watch out, bikes ahead", or "Bike have to drive here". Why the sign is placed just where bike are moving and not in the middle of the road? Some bikers will try to avoid these paint because it's thick causing an safety issue. Also paint is a enemy of bikers. if it's wet, it's easy to slip. So... was tax payer money well spend? Were bikers asked for an opinion before spending the money? Who are the decision makers? Almost every 50 meters one sign for around 6 km, that is hundreds of signs... that is lot's of paint and work...
