"Them to reach their dream of thousands and thousands of people commuting to work on bicycles. As a matter of fact, there were two specific members of the Denver City Council. Sussman and Brooks, who in 2015 Reveal their auto animus, and they brazenly admitted that their intent is to discourage driving in Denver by making it more accommodating the bicycles and more quote inconvenient. Unquote for motorists. Alright Tim Jackson. Thanks for joining us this afternoon. Good to be with you, Mike. This piece that you had in the Denver Post that I read and marked up and I've been saving it for a while, in order to find a time to get you on the air, So we've finally been able to do that. Give us a kind of a summary of what you wrote. Well you about and it's traffic congestion by designs. In fact, Denver City of Denver is designing to make your traffic commute worse. Ana. I think you know a certain population will just get tired of commuting to Denver if they live outside of Denver and just won't do business in downtown Denver, and by the way It's really hurting downtown Denver businesses. It's the last thing that the businesses in downtown Denver need is the city of Denver, making it harder for their customers to get to them, But that's exactly what's happening. It's um It's an amazing Phanom. You've got it tend and peg exactly right. And and it doesn't make any sense. First off Let's all agree. I think most of us can agree that it makes absolutely no sense to take driving lanes away from drivers on South Broadway, a major corridor from downtown 25 And reallocate those for thus rapid transit. And bicycles and I know you've seen the movie field of dreams. Yes, heard the adage. If they build it, they will come for Denver has built bicycle lanes on South Broadway. It was idiotic, and I told the City Council member Dylan Clark, that at the time they did it. Now, two years later, Still, nobody rides those bicycle lanes. Let me give you the details on that are the ones on on Broadway look like a Rube Goldberg contraption. The bicycle lane is actually moved into the lines of traffic and the parking lane is now not on the curb, but between the bicycle between the curb and bicycles go between the curb and the Car parking lane, which is now in what used to be a thoroughfare Lane. I drive that frequently. I have not seen I'd say total in six months. I've seen maybe a half a dozen people on bicycles using that. Yeah, we actually did a study on that We did a A traffic count for a commuter counts on during that party through that corridor. During the rush hour traffic. On the last Friday in October last year, which was last Freddy before Daylight savings time because we wanted to be able to count the commuters in the cars and on the buses and on the bikes. And 89% of the 6300. Some commuters 89% Let's say nine out of 10 and around it. We're in passenger cars compress to those middle three lanes, taking a longer commute because they were so compressed. And 11% were on bus, rapid transit in the right hand lane. That was a little higher count, and I thought we'd get that. Um it was roughly 10% to be exact 11%. I think that number would be reduced now because covered 19. Who wants to get on a bus and share a bus seat. But we don't know who's sitting next to us behind us in front of us or Before we got on in the same seat. I was on ly 2/10 of 1%. So out of 6300 and 85 commuters. They were actually 11th. That road bikes through there. And here's the irony, Mike. That's not even the punch line. The punch line that is that only five of those 11 actually used the bicycle lanes. That the city of Denver spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to provide Unequal number five took their bike lane out of the bus lanes. And then one brave soul took his bike lane out of the middle of the card lanes on either a wing and a prayer or a death. Wish. No helmet. No hands on the handlebars. Just straight down the middle length there. There's another one and I was just over there. You're familiar with the Aurora Medical Center. Over on South Potomac Thiss thing was under construction for about a year. It's finally finished. It runs for about one mile. From on South Potomac between Mississippi and ill if goes right past the Aurora Medical Center and a number of other little medical buildings that that are right around there. They have. They've reduced now the traffic lanes toe one lane in each direction. There is to be two lanes in each direction. They have a middle lane, which you can use for left or right turns and then On the Ah, the Heading from. I love to Mississippi. Ah, on the right side of the roadway. There's their bicycle lanes, one in each direction for bicycles, heading one way and bicycles heading the opposite direction. Then there's a concrete abutment. That's about Oh, I don't know, six inches high or something like that, With stakes coming out of it. White steaks going up looking like at the out of bounds takes on golf courses. That's what they've built. I have you have any idea why this had to have cost about a half a million dollars? Any idea? I got a doctor right near there. So I'm through that frequently. I've never seen one bicycle ever. Not one The bicycle. Listen, by the way, I'm pretty avid cyclist spend 2 to 3000 miles on a Bicycle seat each year. I don't want to take my bicycle lane down.

We need accountability. But council members while supporting the idea of police reform would not go. There is just irresponsible sums Saying they weren't given a chance to study the bill.
