Implying the Cannon bike lanes are a failure, because it started up slowly, eh?

During the summertime, I did dashcam video and roadside video survey of Cannon and it appears to be a gradually increasing success so far.

From streetside video observations, what surprised me was the stoplights were timed in a way that there were several moments (in a 10 minute time period) where there were no cars for 1 full minute between the car platoon surges.

Now it's wintertime where bike use declines, DUH. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't have cycle tracks just because they're snowed in on certain days of 3-4 months of the year.

Just look at Toronto's "luxury" Sherbourne bike lanes, fer crissakes.
During it first year, it had less bike traffic than today's Cannon cycle track.
Now, it is much busier, thanks to connections to the new Queens Quay cycle track, and the Richmond/Adelaide cycle track.

By your implication, you're just calling a kettle black. Or calling a rural freeway a failure because it "doesn't have dense car traffic during rush hour signifying success". Stop using your own personal distorted measuring stick!
