TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! HATING THE UNUSED KANSAS CITY BIKE LANES!!!
Just a quick thought because I've got video games to play . . . Check a bit of EXCLUSIVE insight into pricey Kansas City traffic waste.
After an extensive survey of one of our new Downtown cyclist accommodations . . .
KANSAS CITY BIKE LANES ARE MOSTLY UNUSED AND A COMPLETE WASTE OF CASH WHICH MERELY EMBOLDENS THE DANGEROUS LOCAL CYCLIST LOBBY!!!
Today's example . . . Southwest Boulevard bike lanes haven't seen any significant cyclist traffic even on the nicest of days.
But it gets worse . . . Let's not forget that on the Chouteau Bridge, the bicycle and pedestrian retrofitting cost about $2.8 million of a nearly $5 million project. And it's nice that a few hobos will have safter passage but it's hardly a "transit" initiative.
Instead . . . Given that Kansas City Democracy is taking its last dying breaths . . . These useless vanity projects have been nothing more than a way for the middle-class to take part in a pricey bit of special interest politics that doesn't really contribute to anything but boosting egos of housewife activists in training.
And it gets in the way of traffic . . .
And so, Critical Mass still openly defies traffic rules & regs in Kansas City from time to time and because it's expedient . . . Our political elite offer far too much consideration to the cycling lobby in order to offer the appearance of civic engagement on our most trivial Kansas City issue.
