Personally I'm not sure I want more riders on the road especially if they would be riding like they drive now. But.. if these bicycle advocacy groups really want to get folks to stop driving cars I think it may be easer to convince them if scooters and motorcycles were options.
I thought they were using the London model? If so, bikes get a pass on the charge to help pronote their use in congestion.

After spending most of my day Friday in Manhatton traffic, anything to help reduce that mess would be welcome.

Your only on Canal St. for a mile or so, or spend the dough and take the tunnel right to the west side highway which is just as congested that time of day.

Have a beer or three for me!

Wait…on second thought, I’ll have a beer for me by the pool here in the Philippines.

Damn…work is tough! ;)
