    more bicycle lanes.
    more bicycle routes.
    better intersections with distinct stripes in crosswalks.
    better light configuration so cars aren’t frustrated sitting at lights while the other direction has no one passing through.

  2. Julio Carrera says:

    Do not remove traffic lanes and convert them to bicycle lanes. Traffic lanes that the city is considering for reduction must have support from the local residents and the City must contact and consult with the residents of the neighborhood who actually live next to these streets. A bicycle coalition that does not live in the neighborhood, and often with many members, try to strong-arm a result from the city. The city must stress consultation with local residents first and above all.

    The Vehicle Enhanced Network proposed by the city seems reasonable.
