"I walked in at 7 was breaking up. There are no dissenters because nobody loses. The bridge does not take away from anybody and also helps locals get to Lincoln Village shopping center by foot. As long as there is funding there really are no…"

David Barish replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane? 2016
"While standing on the sidewalk at Dearborn and Lake I saw this.  Why couldn't the  van be parked in the open space next to the bike lane that was made for parking?  Not sure.  I guess driving with an M tag can lead one to…"

David Barish replied to pat 5.5mi's discussion Dooring caught on video (Toronto)
"I completely agree.  I find  so-called protected bike lanes which are to the right of the parked cars to be more dangerous than  doing  nothing at all.  I strongly prefer a marked lane to the left of parked cars.  I…"
