Left-Bike Lanes in Washington, DC.

I must admit I don’t really understand the left bike lanes in DC

They don’t jive with how cycling is done in every other place ridden (the rules change for bikes and for cars which cannot be safe).

Plus, they cross over left-turn lanes into which cars routinely pull into and then sit so far away from the curb that they are in the bike lanes. This is not safe either.

Please, someone tell me all the justifications for the left-justified cycle tracks in DC.

Thank you for reading.
