  1. I don’t believe the bike lanes planned for North Figueroa require removal of any car lanes… it’ll probably be just like the ones on Sunset.

  3. And their complaints echo what I have said — the bike lanes are in all over, but it is rare to see anyone using them — despite bike promoters false assertions to the contrary. Just look for yourself. Yet, “road diet” are having a significant negative impact on drivers.

    Build it and they will come is just a fantasy movie, not real life.

    Bikes are great, don’t get me wrong, I’m all for them. But I am very much opposed to this dictatorial approach to attacking cars and doing all that can be done to undermine use of a car, and using bicycle lanes as a false tool for that attack — all in an effort to dictate whether you will drive a car. And the lack of use of bicycles in the bicycle lanes is the proof of the false attack.

    There is nothing wrong with cars — not now that they are being changed over to clean burning. This get-rid-of-cars idea is a very old anachronism, about 20 years outdated.

    Instead, what should be getting fought is the idiotic city officials’ loud and endless and extreme promotion of Los Angeles in order to attract the entire world population here. We need to be quiet, and let the hordes forget about us, not bring in the NFL and LA Live and do the TON of other things city officials keep doing to attract everyone here.

    Gee, they want us to start drinking toilet water now — so we will have that much more water so we can attract that many more people. We have to have the water first, then they can push to bring ever more people here.
