Listen: Manhattan, Denver And Brooklyn discussed on Mandy Connell
"And I appreciate your distinction between bike lanes and bike paths. Bike lanes from cyclist point of view, confused, the hell out of at least me I'm used a the road. I'm part of traffic, and I have to follow traffic laws. I have to be in the lane, and I also have to maintain whatever speed limit is posted for that lane. And it just boggles my mind that we are spending that much money provide bike paths, and I'm using quotes. Or? Have you ever an traffic if I'm downtown? I am traffic. Just like you are have you seen fourteenth and fifteenth street the bike lanes on those two streets downtown. Yeah. It's a nightmare. Proposed cyclist crazy. Yes. To say nothing of Broadway. That's so bad. It's belaboring the obvious. Right. And I I really do believe that downtown we can maintain the just like cars Cam, and we belong in traffic. We cars, and we have to oblige by traffic laws. And in in suburbia when I was of course, I never lived in suburbia. I lived in Brooklyn, but it wasn't like midtown Manhattan. And when I was twelve years old, we we drive on the streets with cars. It wasn't bumper to bumper traffic, and you didn't have rush hour problems. But we could coexist with with motorists and these weren't commuting pads either. But in downtown Denver imagine, the kind of bike lanes that they're putting in here in Denver, imagine that in New York City in Manhattan fleet can't even fathom that. And and honestly, I can tell you that I have been in traffic. I take turn lanes. I basically I take my space like I'm at a car, and I act like car. That's all you know, that the biggest problem, I think is that most cyclists don't oblige by traffic."
