From the mouth of babes....why we need bike lanes in Midtown.

Totally not local, but related to our current Midtown issues....sometimes the basics are so simple that even a child gets it.  So why doesn't Reno City Council and RTC!?

Here's the text:

Here is Grossman's spiel. You may want to put on a patriotic tune while you read it.
Clearly there are motorists out there who are not mature enough to share the road without having the rules painted on the road to show who goes where. The road diet, by design, is meant to slow down cars because — motorists are the problem. Even if there are zero bicyclists taking advantage of the bike lanes, it doesn't matter. The road diet effectively reduces collisions and the statistics prove this. Stop bullying and victim-blaming the pedestrians and bicyclists as being the problem.
If motorists acted towards women, or another group of people, the way you act towards cyclists, people would be horrified by your hateful words and violent actions.
I don't understand why driving a car makes you think you're more important than someone else. You're not.
It's whiny entitled behavior you wouldn't tolerate from a kid, why should I tolerate it from adults?
Here's a couple more locals who seem to agree!
