Detroit Bike City? This Ranking Says No, Plus 3 Things To Know Around Town
Detroit: A great bike city, or theÂ bestÂ bike city? We dive into that superwonky argument in the wake of Detroitâ€™s abysmal showing in PeopleForBikeâ€™s annual rankings of theÂ Best Cities For Bikes in 2019. Detroit scored a lowly 1.6 out of 5 stars, the same as 2018, despite all the work thatâ€™s been done to install protected bike lanes, bike traffic counters and other bike-friendly infrastructure improvements. Ferndale and Ann Arbor both scored higher, at 3.0 stars each. But the organizationâ€™s methodology spurred aÂ rebuttal pieceÂ by Todd Scott over at Detroit Greenways Coalition. Whoâ€™s right? We talk about it. Also on todayâ€™s show: Detroitâ€™s new streetlights are already going dark, adding to a familiar narrative about the city with broken streetlights. Republicans on Tuesday approved a bill that would reform Michiganâ€™s no-fault auto insurance system, despite objections from thoseÂ radical leftists at the Michigan Health and Hospital Association. The bill now heads to the state House. And we offer our suggestions for where to go to celebrate Motherâ€™s Day. You can alsoÂ read it here. Thanks for listening to Daily Detroit.
