Don't Just Blame the Cyclists

In response to the Vancouver Sun's recent editorial chastising cyclists for blocking traffic with Critical Mass rides, Gary Engle declares that the op-ed didn't go far enough: there are lots of other villains responsible for causing traffic chaos.

Engler declares that the police should arrest all those who have caused so many traffic headaches -- such as the developers and planners who've produced Vancouver's sprawl, people who refuse to use public transit and those who argue against transit investments because they don't want their taxes raised. Then he concludes,

"Imagine how many fewer traffic jams there would be if all these people were put behind bars. If they were locked away before the next Critical Mass, my bet is that even 10,000 bike riders in the downtown core would barely be noticed. But if they still cause a traffic jam and disrupt the peace, I say arrest them too and throw them in jail."
