Planet Princeton op-ed: "Four Wheels Good, Two Wheels Bad?" by Nat B

Please check out the comments thread and consider adding your two bits.

At public meetings lately, there's been a lot of support for bicycling and pedestrian safety improvements, but there's been equally strong resistance. 

A variety of improvements intended to slow traffic and create safer spaces for people on foot and bike have been opposed on grounds that they would, among other things: 
  • Increase traffic hazards and reduce convenience for drivers 
  • Not actually be useful for bike and pedestrian safety 
  • Pose excessive obstacles to resident parking and brush disposal 
  • Reduce access to home services for residents 
  • Jeopardize the health and safety of senior citizens
