God, I can't tell you how much I love protected bike lanes! They've converted the city I live in into one of the most cyclist-friendly in Europe. I concur with this new study. Protected bike lanes make cycling so much safer that the whole idea of commuting by bike becomes appealing to thousands of people and makes living car-free so much easier.
I say: Up with protected bike lanes! Down with "vehicular cycling"! What say ye about how protected bike lanes can encourage the car-free lifestyle?
“Protected bike lanes safer, better,” says science. “Duh,” says rest of us.
