Never say PT isn’t open to a range of points of view. Here’s one by David* – who argues for #stanleyparkforall. That is, keep the bikes on the seawall (crowding is only evidence of its popularity) and keep both lanes for cars (because of seniors, disabled, business, etc.).
Gotta say, it’s a well-done video.
So, what’s wrong with sharing the road with one lane for each? David’s response: “we don’t know how it could impact traffic flow or emergency vehicle access”. Reverse what you did, Parks Board, go back to the way it was – before March 2020 ever happened – and have a conversation. A long conversation.
Well, David, now we will know how one lane each impacts traffic flow. And my guess is, after seeing the results so far and by the end of summer, you’ll have to come up with another well-done video.
*Tell is more about yourself, and, while you’re at it, what you think those ‘improvements’ to the seawall would be to accommodate the (yes, literally) hundreds of thousands of bike trips being made on Park Drive as a result of the current configuration.
