Generification! Get these damn yuppies off my road! I learned to ride when there was 50% less traffic, so I don't get what the problem is with todays kids.
Re: In short, the bikeway system got started by motorists
Let's pull out the old historic creation myth, because evil was present during the incarnation it can never be removed even by powerful good witches like The Charmed Ones.
All you are telling us is once upon a time you failed to make a convincing argument and over the years in trying to improve that argument, it still fails to convince. You write like you majored in English and are trying to tell a fictional story and nothing more. As much as you try to set the rules and make biased terms to force the conclusion you want, that just isn't how debating works.
Incompetent cycling bikeways that don't operate according to the rules of the road for drivers of vehicles, OMG, the sky is falling and only disaster can result. Only that the sky has not fallen and no disaster has been reported but it's up to "us" to counter your false premises otherwise the sky has indeed fallen, right.
