I read the article by Darren MacDonald in the July 22 issue of Northern Life. I think there is more to this than meets the eye.
I believe John Lindsay has more support than MacDonald mentioned. Lindsay must have taken a look at the present Attlee Avenue, and he wants to prevent the same results that happened on that street, all in the name of “calming.”
The residents of Attlee refused a bicycle lane, but our ward councillor added signs and designated white lines to indicate the lane for cyclists, with signs to share the road. The signs do not make sense, considering the state of the road.
Two or five lanes with a bicycle path will always be dangerous. It is just human nature that accidents will occur, and you are placing all drivers in jeopardy.
I am not against bicycle lanes, but keep them away from traffic. There’s a little too much lobbying by a very small minority.
