Stop the Bike Lanes
This petition had 585 supporters
The City of Vancouver plans to prevent residents from stopping their vehicles in front of their houses on Point Grey Road, Stephens, York and Trafalgar streets.
The City plans to reduce vehicle lanes on Point Grey Road from 4 to 2, on York and Trafalgar from 2 to 1 and on Stephens from 2 to 0.
To make room for its “Greenway” the City plans to chop down trees and reduce Park space on Point Grey and Trafalgar.
Because of lost vehicle lanes, the City expects the traffic congestion to nearly double on 4th Avenue, McDonald, Cornwall, Burrard and other streets.
The project is expected to cost millions of dollars, and the City plans to increase property taxes.
Since arterial route bike lanes have been introduced to Vancouver, bicycle traffic has actually decreased and the number of bicycle accidents has actually increased. See http://604commuter.wordpress.com/ for details.
There is already a bike lane on 3rd Avenue, which costs nothing, and causes none of the disruption, congestion or environmental damage proposed by the City.
The City intends to implement this plan very soon.
If you want this plan changed, contact the City of Vancouver Director of Transportation, Jerry Dobrovolny at 604-873-7331 email@example.com
