Thursday Video - Bike Lane Opponents

Coronado, California has won national awards for bike friendliness
This week's video comes from the September 29, 2015 broadcast of the Late, Late Show. James Corden shows people at a public hearing speaking out against bike lanes in Coronado, California. Among their arguments:
  • We are covering Coronado with "paint stripe pollution"
  • The "graffiti" on streets reduces property values.
  • Markings can induce "a dizzying type of vertigo."
Despite the absurdity of the arguments, city officials tabled the plan, at least temporarily. I have no idea how this eventually turned out.
