GO Dutch - Unrealistic
I just wanted to add my two pence worth. I signed the petition but the Go Dutch Campaign seems ridiculous to me. In fact I cancelled my LCC membership as I feel this campaign is so misguided.
I do not think that the LCC should believe that they have enough power to redesign the layout of London roads on the Dutch Model. I do not believe that the majority of London roads will be altered to offer segregated cycling paths. At best a few more roads will be altered but the majority will remain places where cyclists and drivers need to learn to share the space. Instead of segregation, facilities to aid the sharing of space should be campaigned for.
I believe the LCC has a tendency to be idealistic and out of touch with the realities of London and what is possible. I believe their campaigning muscle is wasted by pushing for unrealistic aims such as trying to segregate cyclists and motorists.
Don't get upset by my rant - rant back at me,
