Epic protected bike lane study...American cities only

Streetsblog is going to do a recap on a new survey our about protected bike lanes in the US. I thought about reading it but it was over 120 pages.

Stay tuned!

Get Ready for a Landmark Study of America?s Protected Bike Lanes | Streetsblog USA

Looks like there will be lots of juicy info.

Not so much crazy, but more angry.......many of our poor local cycling infrastructure designs were the result of heated 11th hour compromises between auto parking and cyclists' needs.

But it's true:
TheWashCycle: If you like bike lanes, then you're a racist and a communist or something. It's actually not clear. BEGRIMED!

It's worth reading for the details and the discrepancies. Some of the writing strongly suggests the study authors aren't terribly familiar with the vehicle codes of the states in the report, since they classify as erroneous the behavior of drivers and cyclists who obey the law over the paint.

Ah, but friend, I laughed because it was among dissimilar items in the list. I don't disagree, but "angry" would have been my choice of term.
