Some traffic engineers and some politicians are fighting a determined but ultimately futile battle against the natural order. One day, this stupid sign will be erased and replaced with a red carpet. That would be the common sense approach; the human way. A #wheeledpedestrian is not intent on breaking rules. It’s just that some rules and attitudes are so stupid, they deserve to be ignored.
In the meanwhile, please take note of all the signs, physical and symbolic, that indicate how far away we are from achieving the grand prize; of creating cities that are great for people, rather than cars. One day, the quantity of #wheeledpedestrians will be one of the measures of a city’s quality. There’s work to be done.
‘Cycling’ is sport and recreation. ‘Riding a bicycle’ is everyday activity. No sweat.
