Tonight: Voices of Reason Needed to Counter PPW Bike Lane Hysteria
Its fresh green paint is already bringing relief to car-free commuters, but that hasn’t stopped anonymous opponents of a safer Prospect Park West from continuing to spread anti-cyclist tripe of the kind pictured above.
Though no names or contact information have to our knowledge accompanied any of these fliers, local media can’t resist piling on, generally trumpeting random comments as prevailing opinion and ignoring the fact that the PPW bike lane was vetted by the local community board and installed at the request of residents who prefer bike and foot traffic to another lane for speeding drivers. If any Streetsblog readers are able to attend tonight’s misinformation session, please let us know how it went.
Lots of other relevant things happening over the next few days. This week’s calendar post is coming up.
