    Marty hates bikes and bike lanes:

    In a live discussion, he heatedly claimed that NYC motorists were being targeted and ostracized, and that it was "like Communist China." (Ironically, as we cyclists know, China is more & more turning its back on cycling in favor of caging...)

    "What about the 55,000 Americans who'll die on the highways this year? That's nearly 6 or 7 times the number that'll get killed in Vietnam. Why aren't you up in arms about that? Or is dying in a car somehow moral?" - Jack Webb as Sgt. Joe Friday lecturing some no-good dirty hippie-punks on Dragnet 1968
