They said since the plan was announced they’ve gotten a lot of phone calls and emails from listeners…and that many of them were confused about what exactly a bike box was, and/or had issues with bicyclists in general (like a lot of Portlanders do).
We talked about whether or not bike riders pay their fare share, how bike boxes work, and larger issues like why some folks might not be too excited about these changes.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
