  1. everyone talks about bicycle months and days, but then on the next breath I turn on the tv and hear safe cycling ottawa and the ottawa police blame/shame cyclists for not having horns, lights, and flashy costumes on while biking…

    horns are useless in traffic, they won’t do a damn thing for those in their metal cage with music playing
    lights are ok at night, won’t save yah from a rogue driver during the day.
    And, to wear all sorts of flashy clothing, what are we becoming a 3rd world nation?

    anyhow, very rarely does the city take the blame/shame for poor road design – plenty of examples of that failure – the booth street bridge the most recent flawed design plus recent news paper articles

    Cities lack forward thinkers – future thinkers that considers capacity planning, planning for alternative modes of transportation etc… its mostly just flying by the seat of the pants sort of planning.
