Bikeshare: Threat or menace?

By Felix Salmon
June 1, 2013

Presented without comment, a few quotes from the WSJ’s “Death by Bicycle” video:

  1. “Do not ask me to enter the mind of the totalitarians running this government.”
  2. “We now look at a city whose best neighborhoods are absolutely begrimed by these blazing blue Citibank bikes.”
  3. “It’s not just shocking; it’s also a fire hazard in some cases, because the fire trucks can’t get into subway stations.”
  4. “Before this, every citizen knew, who was in any way sentient, that the most important danger in the city is not the yellow cabs. It is the bicyclists.”
  5. “Tourists are going to get onto these bikes as well!”
  6. “The bike lobby is an all-powerful enterprise.”
