Burton Street In Grand Rapids Loses A Lane For Bicycle Lanes
So what do you think about all of these changes that are happening to Grand Rapids roads, kind of like the one happening on Burton. I’m seeing roads all over the city becoming narrower to accommodate bikes. Even when the months were much warmer I still have not seen any bikes using these lanes. They are still using automobile lanes with no consideration to the vehicles driving in them. There are more rude bike riders in this city than everywhere else. Okay, so bikes are supposed to have the right of way. I get it! But does that mean that they don’t have to follow any of the other rules? It appears that they don’t. So while all of these things are being done for bicyclists, the bicyclists are oblivious to them because they continue to use motor vehicle lanes. For me? This whole renovation is a complete waste of taxpayer monies.
