(December 3, 2017) “So you used to be a bicycle advocate going back to the eighties …” Mark Towhey discusses Solomon’s controversial cycling article and his view that bicycles have become a harm instead of the benefit that they should be.
“It used to be that municipal laws discriminated against the bicycle. It wasn’t treated fairly as a vehicle on the road. At the time, bicycle advocates were asking for fair treatment, not special treatment. … The problem now is a kind of ideology has swept over cities and bicycles are being promoted in ways that have become inappropriate. Instead of complementing other transportation modes they’re encroaching on other transportation modes.”
