NO bike lanes on ECR!!!

From: domainremoved <M>

This is Margaret Monroe.

I am a long-time resident of Menlo Park.

I am VERY opposed to allowing bike lanes on ECR. It is TOO DANGEROUS to the bicyclists.
In all motor vehicle-bicycle collisions, the bicyclist ALWAYS  gets hurt because he/she does not have a steel cage around him/her.
|
Only a VERY SMALL percentage of people who need to go places will EVER be able to bicycle there.  Why?
1. Too infirm -- temporarily or permanently
2. Far too much stuff to transport
3. Bad weather -- too hot or too cold
4. Trip is much too long
5. Need to carry several passengers (i. e., pick up kids)

Bicycling will therefore NEVER be able to provide regular transportation for more than a TINY percentage of our population.

So -- WHY kow-tow to a MINORITY???
 
ECR has TOO MUCH TRAFFIC to waste the space on bike lanes.
We NEED that room for motor vehicles!!!

Please -- VETO that stupid idea of putting bike lanes on ECR!!
