A Localized Rant

Who is the idiot of an urban planner who thought it a good idea to put bike lanes along Allisonville Road on Indianapolis' north east side? This is one of the most congested areas in the city and encouraging any more traffic, especially bicycle traffic, in the area around Castelton Mall is beyond stupid.

This is is the green agenda thrust in all of its idiocy in our faces. There is no reasonable person who thinks adding a bike lane to SIX lanes of traffic is not a recipe for disaster, death and accidents. This is the certainly case at Allisonville and I-465.

The only thing dumber than the bike paths along Allisonville Road in the Castelton area is the moron who would ride his bike on them.

It's not safe to drive a car at Alllisonville and 465 even after the construction has been complete, much less ride a bike.

I hate driving on 96th street near Geist on a weekend when the eco groupies are risking everyone's life by not riding in the bike/walking path instead riding in the narrow curvy road.

OMG, your not in favor of green! Now come on HB who else would be stupid enough to do that? Hint, think liberal. We have the same thing down here in South Carolina in Charleston, the bike riders wanted a lane over a bridge after one of theirs was turned into pavement pudding. The state told the city they couldn't do it because of the classification of the highway. The Charleston liberals were up in arms demanding the bike lane, personally I hope they get it approved, if your dumb enough to ride over that bridge your service to humanity is questionable.
You can't fix stupid not even with duct tape.

The idiots who would ride in these places is an example of Darwinism at its finest!

Allisonville? Heh. Sorry, but the guy who ordered the bike lanes and suicide turn lanes that caused Broad Ripple Avenue to shrink overnight from two lanes both ways to one lane both ways needs to be publicly crucified.

Oh, wait. That would be the Mayor.

Don't even get me started on the bike lanes (that nobody uses) the city built downtown on major rush-hour streets.
