VC- its all about convenience for the motorists
Well, having read john's rants in this forum for the last few months, I have become increasing appraised of how much the vc camp kowtows to the motorists.
shoulders for bikes on high speed roads more acceptable than bike lanes -even if the bike lane could be built 100% vehicularily -shoulder riding can largely get the bikes off the road alltogther.
banning bikes from high speed 'freeways' so as to not impede high speed motorized travel. banning bikes from certain types of road.
I predict johns handlers at the ADC won't be happy just banning bikes from freeways, it will soon become the accepted vc mantra to ban bikes from limited access highways, then 50MPH high speed artertials, so as to not impede the motorists.
John's assertions about how, given the scarcity of transportation infrastructure dollars, bicyclists shouldn't be considered. we should be designing the roads for the motorists.
anyway, I find john's obsession about the supremacy of the automoble in the transportation heirarachy is very disturbing and anti-bicyclist.
