Albert Koehl on Vision Zero and the Bloor bike lane pilot

Albert Koehl writes in Dandyhorse:

“When Toronto’s Public Works and Infrastructure Committee (PWIC) met last week to debate a pilot bike lane on Bloor St., it was no surprise that many residents and businesses attended to express their support. The surprise was that Council’s PWIC chair, who is also spearheading Toronto’s road safety strategy, modelled on Vision Zero, voted against the pilot despite its modest 2.4 km length (on a 5,500-km road system) and its safety objectives. As a result, the pilot has now been punted to the full council for debate and decision this upcoming Wednesday, May 4, 2016.”

“Fortunately, other city councillors still have an opportunity at this week’s Council meeting to prove that protecting cyclists actually matters, and that the safety of “our most vulnerable road users” is a real priority in Toronto.”
