Along for the Ride
Love them or hate them, the momentum for barrier protected bicycle lanes on congested thruways is gaining ground. In a city where rush hour traffic seems to run 20 hours a day, the desire of commuters who favour two wheels instead of four is reasonable, however those commuters who choose and/or require the use of a vehicle for their daily responsibilities may argue the unfairness of taking away what was previously dedicated for their sole usage. It appears finding happy ground in this urban debate is still a long way off.
