Isn’t it interesting how bike enthusiasts require the total surrender of the automobile for Victoria’s six per cent of bicycle commuters? Brighton Street could be used for east-west bicycling much as Vancouver is for a north-south route. Downtown bike lanes are a grievous danger to a pedestrian not totally alert to buzzing cyclists.
The closing of Richardson at Foul Bay to through vehicular traffic is totally insane. And contrary to the views of a previous letter writer, it is not about the extra seven minutes of inconvenience for drivers. It is about the general havoc that these bike lanes will cause elsewhere.
