hey, now we're really getting somewhere...I agree completely. For the record, I'm not suggesting we 'force' anyone to change their modes of transport. But the fact remains, in order to improve transit times and convenience as well as cycling safety we need to slow down street traffic...not jam it up, but slow it down.

I know people who have said "I will NEVER use transit regardless of how great they make it" (apparently they have been hijacked by their car, but I digress). I tell those people that they should be the first ones supporting LRT and world-class transit and cycling lanes. Because a large chunk of the population will change their habits once they see the benefits to their own health and pocketbook. Those who still choose to drive everywhere will have the road to themselves! It's a win-win.
