Video Tribute to Jarvis Bike Lanes


In anticipation of tonight’s Ride for Jarvis, Ride for Toronto event, a video tribute to Jarvis Street and its current state: one with dedicated space for both cars and cyclists, and through which everyone travels at a decent pace. Heart-swelling soundtrack aside, the video does illustrate one key point: at 8:30 a.m., traffic isn’t jammed, and there are plenty of cyclists benefiting from the bike lanes currently in place.

    Sad to think that this city counsel allows those outside the neighborhood dictate what happens in another neighborhood.

    One of the many ironies of the car: Everyone wants to conveniently drive through others' neighborhoods while keeping their own safe and quiet.

    Twisty roads with stop signs?  War on the car.  One-way side streets?  War on the car.  Dead-end cul-de-sacs? War on the car.  But it's OK if it's in front of *your* home.

    So Moore Park gets traffic calming for 'community safety', but Jarvis gets 5 lanes because 'traffic will flow better'.
