Get Off the Road Indeed

Problem: Deaths and injuries of cyclists in collision with motor vehicles.

Proposed Solution: Move cyclists onto pedestrian paths instead.

Oh, so those pesky cyclists are injuring themselves by letting motor vehicles hit them. Shall we move them out of the way, so you drivers are free of all culpability now? Let’s make life even more miserable for non-drivers: terrorise the pedestrians the way motor vehicles terrorise cyclists!

Now, of course, motor vehicles are much more dangerous to cyclists than cyclists are to pedestrians. Nevertheless, it does not make sense that when motorists present a danger through their own doing, that those who are made to pay are non-motorists. How about actually educating motorists on how to accommodate cyclists and making cyclist-friendly provisions on the roads? Oh, I forgot, it’ll slow down traffic and reduce economic productivity.
