Imagine taking away a two-way street for this kind of crap.
Where’s there to bike to around there btw? And why is it always White People in those fancy drawings?
Our bet is that this moronic bike path will last about two years before it’s “repurposed” back into a real street. Gordon’s right, too. Until then there’ll be lots of sideswiping on that soon-too-narrow street.
Not one council member agreed with his perfectly sensible observation:
Councilman David Gordon voted against the improvements, saying he had concerns about the slimmer-than-usual parking lane, and he feared that people getting out of their vehicles may be struck by oncoming traffic.
Additionally, Gordon said he did not like the idea of having bicyclists and pedestrians using the same lane. He suggested having a curb instead of bike lanes.
“We have 10 feet of travel lanes against 8 feet of parking in a lot of places,” Kriske said. “This is not out of the ordinary for Burbank. It has the wonderful side effect, we think, that cars won’t be able to go fast because [the lane] will be tight and [they’ll travel] slower.”
Yeah, uh-huh. That’s how drivers work.
