Brookline's Bike Lanes

The Brookline Tab has a cover story on bike lanes. (Yes, that's yours truly in the picture. Fortunately, black is slimming.)

Newton is going to have to struggle with the two camps represented in the article: those who believe a separate zone is better for bicyclists and those who believe bicyclists are best served when they are included in the traffic flow. Here at NS&S, we're in the first camp, though there has to be plenty of care given to the dangers of dooring and right-turning traffic at intersections. Ultimately, a separate zone is going to get more people out on bikes and there's safety in numbers.
