Yesterday, I wrote about local governments thwarting the will of their own people to add bike lanes everywhere at the expense of growing automobile traffic.

I heard a great idea from a local mayor who was talking about Seattle’s penchant for removing vehicle lanes to replace bike lanes.

His suggestion was that if bikers get in an accident in their bike lanes, their only emergency assistance option should be bike ambulances.

Someone on a bike, pulling a stretcher attachment, should ride up, help you out, throw you on the back (if needed), and bike you off to the local hospital.

Seems right to me.
