“Taking The Lane” – by George Pechtol / The Urban Country
In a tweet this week, I called on fellow Torontonian cyclists to take the whole right lane to discourage drivers from passing closely – while earlier this week I posted the article “Bike Lanes: A Motorist Invention?”.
The best way to push for more bike lanes is to make drivers want more bike lanes.
Bike infrastructure shouldn’t be seen as detracting from driving space. Giving cyclists a little bit of room also helps keep cars moving too.
