A lot of taxpayer money goes toward road construction, which is mostly car- and truck-oriented construction, and very little of it goes toward bicycle-oriented construction. So bicycle commuters are subsidizing the car drivers much more than vice versa.
In a car-bicycle collision, the car driver might suffer a delay, and some scratched paint, or a dent, while a bicyclist might suffer broken bones, a hospital stay, or death.
We have all of the advocacy articles we’ve printed (along with everything else…) available online. Our regular advocacy writer is David Hoffman, BikePGH founder who now lives in Marin CA doing full time bike advocacy work out there. He’s covered many of these topics for us.
