A few years ago a small advertisement was placed in the LA Times classified about a “Master Bicycle Plan”. Legislation was enacted in the California Vehicle Code and Los Angeles Municipal codes to “protect bicyclists”. City Land Use Departments enacted codes to make changes to commercial buildings and new resident buildings that bicyclists have to be provided “showers”. The Councilmen contacted the Neighborhood Councils and told them about the Master Plan. Did 1,000 people in the whole City of Los Angeles know that this was a plan with far reaching circumstances? In 2010 or earlier, the City put up signs “Bicycle Lane” or “Bicycle Route” understood at that times by many that ‘The Bicyclist Are Coming”. The “Informed Few” knew what those signs meant; Street Striping, Center Medians, loss of auto lanes and parking. In 2012 the “The Informed Few”; the LA Bicycle Coalition, and others businesses named in the bicycle programs brochures,(printed more than two years ago) and community organizations like TERA knew. Just remember, just because they say “Non-profit” doesn’t not mean that they are not making a lot of money and using it to attain their ends. We can fight City Hall, but hardworking, true commuters, people who are concerned about safety and businesses suffering losses as a result of these actions have to band together with time and money. We all want equality, safe streets and fine communities; by the NELA Bicycle Plan for CD1 and CD14 as designed will not work.
