Let’s Choose delves into driver-cyclist conflict

Are bike lanes destroying DC by making it impossible for “real people” to move about? Are cars evil monsters that should be banished? If you ask the candidates for DC Council at-large on April 23, the answer is no to both.

Despite what you might assume if you listen to AAA’s Lon Anderson, Gary Imhoff’s introductions in themail, or certain Adam Tuss NBC broadcast segments, DC leaders of many ages and backgrounds just aren’t interested in more conflict concerning our roadways.

We asked the candidates,

Residents who walk and bicycle often feel our streets are not sufficiently safe for them. Others feel that projects to accommodate bicycles and pedestrians have impeded quality of life for those who must drive. Is there a way forward that can bring peace among all road users? What would you say to each of these groups?

You can vote on the candidates’ responses to this question until midnight Monday, February 18. Meanwhile, stay tuned for the results of last week’s question, on how to spend the surplus, later this week.
