Anti-car in Portland, too

From Paul in Portland:
We have the same problem here in Portland, Oregon. The funny thing is, it rains more than half the year and we get 3-5 months of freezing temperatures. Who would want to ride their bike or walk in that? Perfect example, last year on a major road near my house the city spent a whole year (and $15M) on a road contruction project on a 2,000 foot section of a heavily used 1 lane road. More lanes would have been nice, but no, they widened the sidewalk, and added a median and bike lanes to both sides. Nice. (The comment is in response to this post)

Portland has a very strong bike movement. I'm sure lots of people ride even in the cold.

Privatize all modes of transportation (including the roads). Private owners will work to satisfy the market much more efficiently than our government.

I don't know what's worse; a bicycle fundamentalist or a market fundamentalist...
