Coming soon to San Francisco: Curbees



They have it in Chicago! Cyclists need to rest at the stop signs and stoplights that they can't ignore.

And based on the lack of movement of the vehicles, the cyclist takes off before the light turns green!
No surprise there!

Silly pointless waste of money and space. Use your feet, cyclists.

While were at it we should get rid of running boards. Why do car drivers need them? Theyre just extra weight they have to lug around. Use your legs drivers! Lazy pieces of shit.

Running boards on cars have been obsolete since I was a kid. The thing about cyclists and their enablers in City Hall is the assumption that, regardless of the expense and inconvenience to the rest of us, they have to be made "comfortable." That was the rationale for the gratuitous Fell/Oak bike lanes, with the safety lie tacked on later after it was a done deal.

Maybe the city can hire the homeless to wipe their brows while they're stopped.

What exactly is wrong with making bicycling comfortable on the streets? Should it be uncomfortable?

The first question foolishly presupposes that bicycling can somehow be made "comfortable". Riding a bike is inherently uncomfortable compared to other popular methods of getting from place to place including walking. It calls for perspiration-inducing effort and it requires more-intense exposure to the elements than even pedestrians experience, bicyclists being more affected by chilly headwinds and more sprayed by muddy water from the street surface. A cyclists's entire weight is supported upon just 5 tiny pressure points, resulting in pain, numbness and callouses over time.

So, the answer to the second question is "yes".

Most people recognize this which is a big reason why San Franciscans aren't rushing to trade in their climate-controlled SUVs for bicycles.

No, they will never be obsolete. People like---even depend---on the mobility they provide.

Holy shit you actually believe that car ownership will never be obsolete?!

im confused if taking away lanes causes congestion then why does adding more lanes not reduce congestion?

Where in San Francisco are traffic lanes increasing? Creating bike lanes increases congestion by taking away traffic lanes and street parking on busy city streets for a small minority of cyclists based on nothing but the hope that enough cyclists will then use them to justify screwing up traffic for everyone else.

Throughout the city until the 80's and traffic didn't get any better now did it.

Could you be more specific about exactly where new traffic lanes were created in San Francisco?
