Letter to the editor: What about drivers?

To the editor:

Why are the city rulers so obsessed with the need to spend into the millions of dollars for bicycle paths, “bicycle corridors” and “traffic calming” obstacles for mysteriously unseen throngs of bicyclists? My job has me in every area of the city on a daily basis. Rarely do I see a bicyclist of any age or experience even on the longest, widest paths around town. Meanwhile vehicles are dangerously bouncing and swerving over and around potholes, broken concrete and buckled asphalt. The city seems more interested in getting a higher rating in a bicyclist magazine than providing good streets for the people that actually use them. Is the city working on a plan like the sidewalk plan to require the citizens to pay for roadwork in front of their property? Soon we will all be riding bicycles as the streets will soon become impassable.
