The Urban Impact of Bicyclists
"Seattle is a big blip on bicyclists' radar screen. The city's big street repair package, approved by voters a couple years back, provided $27 million for bicycle projects."
"Some cities are more graceful, providing for non-motorized travel, than others. In Seattle, our Department of Transportation does a variation on Jack Wolters' formula."
"It has made provision for bikers, but disrupts (and often endangers) motorists by ripping up streets with badly marked construction projects . . . and inconveniences pedestrians by blocking off sidewalks. Seattle seems to be adjusting to the increased presence of bicyclists on its streets, as are other cities."
