Gazette letters-to-the-editor: anti-bike rage
Click and read: there's actually a couple of letters on our side, believe it or not!
many angry letter writers (is there another kind?) filling the Gazette newspaper's letter section again today.
We will summarize: Cyclists needs to wear helmets/don't need to wear helmets, cyclists need to get off the sidewalks (this one is correct), cyclists need to get off the roads and onto bike paths only, and cyclists need to have a bicycle license, and cops need to enforce bike traffic laws.
Lastly, the foaming at the mouth furor seems to have removed the wrath directed towards jaywalkers from the letters section.
We encourage all the bike haters to get on a bike and see what it is like to ride among Montreal's crazy drivers and chaotic traffic. Because we are sure their perspective would change from a few hours spent on a bike seat.
As for people riding on busy sidewalks, get the hell off the sidewalk you maroons! What part of "side walk" do you not understand?
