Got a Cycling Question for DOT? Ask Josh Benson.
Getting in on the Bike Month action, City Room has DOT bike program coordinator Josh Benson answering reader questions this week.
As of this writing, over 100 comments have come in since the thread opened yesterday afternoon. While many concern the usual stuff — cars encroaching into bike lanes, problems finding secure parking, etc. — some are more esoteric. One reader suggests a city tax credit for bike commuters, while another wants city-issued baseball bats to keep drivers in line. "Ed" wonders if Benson is BikeSnob, and "BikerGrl2008" cuts to the chase with comment #1:
There’s a spot open on my bicycle built for two. Will you join me?
That you, Julia?
