TKC MUST READ!!! BIKE/WALK ACTIVISTS DEVISE PLAN TO RESTRICT KANSAS CITY AUTO TRAFFIC PERMANENTLY AFTER CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC LOCKDOWN!!!



Empty streets under the coronavirus lock down order has inspired Kansas City activists to advocate for more control over how people move and advance their vision of this cowtown as a place where pedestrian, bike and public transit dominate streets instead of cars.

Here's their latest manifesto . . .

Bike/WalkKC: How We Can Create Space for People

Deets:

BikeWalkKC offers this list of ideas for new public space and we urge local leaders to consider making more space for people. In the midst of the pandemic, we believe such considerations are an appropriate substitute for the sort of changes we would normally suggest for residents to pursue in our Complete KC DIY Guide.

Read their post for the deets but here are the basics for their plan:

Slow Down the Cars

Car-Free Parks

DIY Street Closures

Close Streets to Through Traffic

Pop-Up Projects

Cities could create temporary road diets along major arterials where car traffic has declined significantly. A network of road diets could create new, temporary facilities connecting key destinations, such as hospitals, grocery stores, and parks.

And whilst this all sounds interesting, it's important to see one more special interest using coronavirus to advance their agenda.

if all cyclists were that sexy, i wouldn't have a problem with their plan. But that's not the case. Most of them are rude and dangerous to themselves and drivers.

Just ask around about this group.

The totally destroyed Armour Blvd. To give them control of more streets would be a horrible mistake.

Bikes belong on park trails. Many are very nice. Keep bikes away from the streets that huge SUV's and elderly drive on - or face the consequences. 30lb bike vs. 6,500 pound SUV = death.

I’ll drive anywhere I want any time I want for any reason I want and if any commie leftist bike queer doesn’t like it they can go fuck themselves

I'm a Pedestrian, and I drive. I walk for exercise and mental health.

Now, having established that, I say
TO HELL WITH YOU DAMNED INCONSIDERATE BICYCLISTS!
You arrogant, inconsiderate, self-entitled Bastards are a danger to everyone trying to walk in this City!
I will not support anything you advocate, and, should the City adopt any of your selfish schemes, I will not support any tax increases for any reason.
I certainly hope I have made my position clear, and would hope that someday, the organization that calls itself "Bike/Walk KC" will somehow find the honesty and integrity to remove the "walk" portion of its name, since it exists with absolutely no regard for Pedestrians!

Ha, with the Green deal all your fat asses will be walking . Do you really think solar powered vehicles are going to flood the street ? Or did you not understand that the majority of electricity comes from the equipment powered by oil and gas ? Enjoy walking, all you fat asses that don't enjoy and respect bikes.

7:47 I don't enjoy or respect bikes on the road because you people cause accidents. You go against every law on the road and put everyone in danger. So enjoy your wheelchair.

BikeWalkKC needs a lockdown order against them that is never reversed.

Bikes are a children's toy, enlarged for adults. They are still toys and should not be on city streets. You cant take a tricycle, big wheel or a little red wagon on the streets. Bikes should be off city roads. If I hit one, then its their problem - not mine!

Bikes and cars did just fine together before cell phones came along. Way too msnt distracted drivers. The GPS should shut phones off if moving over 5 mph. Better for all other drivers no matter what type of vehicle.

Dex said...

^^^ Very true.

Distracted drivers are the biggest threat on the road to other drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

Put your damn phone DOWN.

slow the fuck down said...

I find that almost everyone is very generous with giving me space on my bike. Kansas City Nice.
BMW's can go fuck themselves.
