Network of bikeways could reduce Seattle traffic
Follow Portland’s example
In regards to “Connect city with network of bikeways” [Opinion, Nov. 18], I hope Chuck Ayers intends for something like Portland's bike boulevards or neighborhood greenways. Seattle's narrow, winding, hilly and congested streets do not provide safe space for both cars and bicycles.
Instead of trying to force one or the other off the road, why not create avenues, similar to Portland's, for bicycle use? In the meantime, stop the parking of cars, on both sides of narrow streets and fill the deep potholes in the middle.
