Default Why can’t Cincinnati city have world-class bike lanes?


Laure Quinlivan’s call for dedicated bike lanes, “Cincy needs bike
lanes” (April 25), calls to mind my trip to Berlin, where I, like
Quinlivan, biked – taking a tour.

I remember the tour guide’s tongue-in-cheek instructions that
underscored how serious the Germans are about transportation: “If a
pedestrian is walking in the bike lane, it is not only your right to
run them over, it is you duty!”

Berlin’s “dedicated” bike lanes work beautifully, especially as part
of a comprehensive transportation system. It was duly noted that there
was no pollution-producing traffic congestion. When comparing
Cincinnati’s bike lanes with Berlin’s, German engineering trumps
American ingenuity.

If Cincinnati has the political will to create world-class parks, why
can’t we have world-class bike lanes?

Unlike the old country, Cincinnati’s “stubborn Dutchmen” mentality
does not always serve our city well.
