Was looking at the Calgary Herald online and saw this letter:
Council has approved expanding bike lanes for a very small minority, so it's now appropriate for bicycles to be licensed. Testing will ensure that riders clearly understand that vehicular rules of the road apply.
Revenue from these licences can be used to pay a portion of the road painting, signage and enforcement.
I understand these fees will not provide a full cost recovery, as the two cyclists I see each morning on 10th Street couldn't possibly cover all of the costs associated with that brain wave.
