Bike Lanes' Growth in New York Brings Backlash
The New York Times reports:
"Bowing to vocal opposition from drivers and elected officials, the city last week began removing a 2.35-mile painted bike lane along Father Capodanno Boulevard on Staten Island. In Manhattan, a community board held a special hearing this month for business owners to vent about a new protected bicycle lane on Columbus Avenue - in particular, the removal of parking spaces and the disruption of the normal traffic flow."
J. David Goodman writes that the opposition to the growing bicycle infrastructure is getting "increased attention," but is still tiny in comparison with the very vocal pro-bike groups.
