Based on urban city models nationwide, a road diet plan holds the potential to improve safety for everyone who uses the roads in New Haven. Implementation of protected bike lanes along those corridors will separate cyclists from traffic. Will this plan increase bike safety? Is biking a culture or is it just cultural? Is urban biking the new “green way to go” to work of run errands? Will expensive bikes and bike repairs dominate your monthly household budget?
On August 19, 2016 URBAN TALK RADIO hosted by Shafiq Abdussabur, discussed Urban Biking in the Elm with show guests Doug Hausladen- Director of the Transportation, Traffic & Parking department for the City of New Haven/Acting Executive Director of Parking Authority and John Brehon,-Sales Manager for The Devil’s Gear Bike Shop.
They took on the tough questions:
Why bike lanes and who cares?
Is it cheaper to Bike?
Why are the Bike lanes Green?
Where can I chain my bike up?
Is there a Bike Tax?
Is Biking for the Rich?
Who’s paying the cost for the Green Lanes?
