Typical Burbank numbskullness.
Last month the city council voted unanimously to allow bike riders to walk their bicycles across the Mariposa Street bridge:
But, just last week they refused to ratify this previously approved ordinance when it came back to them for a final vote.
Not one member voted for it:

Instead, they sent the whole thing back to staff for a complete revision. Now our city council members want to completely ban bikes and bike riders from using the bridge at all.
Disgusting. Can these council people be any more transparent about their ridiculous favoritism towards this over-privileged group of neighborhood fanatics? Even worse, home horse stabling itself is inherently cruel to animals. Horses are social creatures, and those Rancho-ites who insist on keeping their animals at home are subjecting them to solitary confinement-like conditions.
And they’re worried about a bridge? What hypocrites.
It’s about time the City of Burbank start addressing this issue. We need to completely ban home horse stabling in Burbank. This “Rancho” crowd has been getting away with way too much and for way too long.
What year is this anyway? 1872 on the Ponderosa? Where are we living?
Great website here about the new nation-wide effort to get rid of home horse stables and restrictive stabling in general. Just like keeping caged elephants in zoos, people are finally starting to wise up about how cruel it all is. The effort’s catching on.
And about time, too. This barbaric, leisure time, elitism-with-animals fantasy world of theirs needs to be addressed at last.
