Two-and-a-half years after a judge issued an injunction preventing the city from adding any new bicycle infrastructure to its streets, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and the San Francisco Planning Department have released a 1353-page Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) on the San Francisco Bicycle Plan.See what happened is some asshole stopped all bike progress in S.F. by demanding an environmental review.
At a cost of more than $1 million, the city has attempted to demonstrate in excruciating detail what would seem to be obvious: better bicycle amenities contribute to increased cycling and an improved environment.
Now I'm no friend of this idiot... but come on, admit it: there is something a little funny about we liberal bicyclists being stopped by a demand for an environmental review. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
