Angie is voting for Rob


I am voting for Rob Anderson because I agree with just everything he said about Ross Mirkarimi. I hope that once elected he will put forth a vote to the BOS to enforce bicyclists to abide by road and sidewalk laws. I’ve been almost hit on a daily basis just walking and have my car spit at, accosted, etc by bicyclists who didn’t think I had a right to be in a lane when turning, etc. I know that this problem will become worse as more and more people ride their bikes to work (a good thing).

Regards,

Angie Wilcox

The conflict between motorists pedestrians and cyclists is a result of street design and traffic managment policy which do not adequately consider the needs of all people.

The bike plan will go some way to redressing that deficiency.

Now, exactly which people did you have in mind, Phillip? Could it possibly be the Bike People, those oppressed androids on two wheels? And which "bike plan" are you talking about? The 500-page Plan the city tried to sneak through the process without any review? Or the list of 56 projects that the city is doing an EIR on right now? Your comment would have more credibility if you showed some sign of being familiar with either one.

What kind of lane, Angie?

people who drive so poorly that cyclists spit at them should probably not be behind the wheel.

I wrote 'all people' and that is what I meant. All people, including motorists will benefit from an improved street environment.

You make a distinction! How bizarre!

But I don't think the bike plan alone is sufficient to create a good environment in which all street users exist cooperatively.

It's a good next step.
