[Comment From Stan Barndt]
Stu, the reason bikes use the sidewalks is fear of the cars!! C'mon, you know that bad drivers are a huge problem. If the drivers obeyed the rules and didn't react with anger when seeing a cyclist use the road legally, more people would ride on the street.
Alex Doty/Bicycle Coalition:
Stu, your vision for a internal-combustion-engine-free future is visionary (and far off). Why can't you envision a better future for bikes?
Stan, I don't want to be flip, but get over the fear. Bicyclists have been riding on public streets for decades. I think what's fueling the current controversy more than anything else is a distinctly anti-car attitude I can detect on the part of some, not all, bicyclists. And no motorists should be allowed to get away with any illegal action.
