    Sent them a bunch of suggestions. Cannot attend meeting… too busy on short notice. Spoke alone face to face with Votava during December, got his card, and will follow up.

    It's always been my stance that roads can handle bikes, cars and walkers if they are permitted their own default space: shoulders, travel lanes, and sidewalks, respectively. Bike technically ride in travel lanes, but shoulders are necessary for cyclists to let motorists pass, which they don't have to otherwise. After all, motorists belong on highways, where cyclists and pedestrians are banned. Motorists are only tolerated on secondarys and side streets, which belong to self propelled folks.
