Toronto Cyclists Union Video Shows Motorists Not Bike-hating Psycopaths After All
Rob Ford says he’s scrapping the Jarvis St. bike lanes because citizens have complained about them, so the Toronto Cyclists Union took a camera to Jarvis and asked people who actually use the street what they think. In one hour of filming, they found only one driver who wanted the lanes removed.
The TCU has posted a video of their informal polling operation here, and the organization claims all drivers they spoke to are featured. They only spoke to about a half-dozen motorists so the results should be taken with a grain of salt, but the video does prove that despite the bike vs. car rhetoric in this town, it’s easy to find drivers who don’t mind sharing the road with bikes.
