Mark Konkol is back with some more of his crusade against the Kinzie Protected Lane.
Big Wimpy Motorists
Well aparently the roads were ment to be used only by him and people he knows.
I couldn't really locate his specific opposition to the Kedzie lane. His concerns were more along the lines of "Well, no one asked me." and "I bet they still won't plow the side streets!".
He even pointed out that $28 million for 100 miles of bike lanes really wasn't that much money. What a helpful guy. Seems kind of resigned, really.
“He’s putting them in,” Klein said. “The mayor says we’re doing it.”
So there you have it — an answer Chicagoans can understand.
Has the Active Trans Alliance tried some kind of outreach to the anti-cycling media voices? Actually getting these guys out on a bike to experience a car-free commute would at the least help them understand what they were crusading against.

After seeing the photo of him I understand why he's so angry. I would be too
