Protecting bikers

At a meeting of the Public Facilities Committee last week, Aldercritter Gentile expressed concern that putting bike lane markings on roadways would give bicyclists a false sense of confidence that motorists would pay them mind.

His comments highlight the need for the city to do more -- much more -- to raise awareness of the right of bikers to the road and the responsibility of motorists to respect that right.
