I'd like to know, is it the sort of thing you only get from depositions, or are there links to specific statements or even City programs you know about? Is there an official statement in which the City demonstrates the belief that making things better for bikes necessarily means destroying traffic circulation for cars and increasing congestion? Or worse, that they will get people out of cars and onto bikes if only they make driving miserable enough? Please share.
I'm not seeing greater bike participation as a result of these changes, and regardless, many people cannot bike, including whole classes of disabled and elderly people, people with mobility challenges, etc., yet the changes dramatically increase congestion and diminish their lives while making driving more dangerous.
I'm asking as someone who has wished for safer biking conditions around town for decades.
We can all see that the City thinks making driving impossible is the main route to improving biking rates, and I've even heard this verbally and read the sentiment on TS, but I would appreciate actual statements, programs, and other formal evidence from the City. Between that and the City encouraging overdevelopment that shuts out the disabled, as in, the disabled can't even visit the stovepipe stack-and-pack housing, it's high time someone sued...
