This morning I had a nice chat with KINK-FM Morning Show anchors Les Sarnoff and Rebecca Webb.
Les and Rebecca called me into the studio to talk about Portland’s effort to improve bike safety by installing blue bike lanes, bike boxes, and new signage at 14 dangerous intersections.
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.
