The criminal trial of the driver who killed a cyclist as she was travelling on Laurier makes me think the real crime is the bike lane itself.
I am going to lose friends for saying this but I never ride the Laurier Bike Lane. I hate it. I want to see actual, safe cycling infrastructure in Ottawa, not just narrow channels designed to keep us from impeding the progress of car traffic.

I like the point that it would put an end the odd dance that occurs when motorist and cyclist are watching each other at intersections, trying to figure out who’s going to commit the violation first
