    Why the scare quotes around “experts”? That’s what Marty Wachs and Brian Taylor genuinely are. It’s unfortunate that Wachs brings up the Pico/Olympic one-way plan, but he and Taylor are 100% right in pointing out that the solutions to traffic are known and the barriers to implementing them are all political.

  • Can you delete this, Damien? Accidental double post; my original comment didn’t post right away and I thought it had been lost.

    This is very true- but it also makes me wonder why there isn’t more focus of determining effective political strategies for making bicycle-safe streets within the biking community. I could be looking in the wrong places, but I read a lot of angst from cyclist bloggers, tweeters, etc., which, however valid it may be, doesn’t do much to get where we want to be with our streets. Garcetti’s idea doesn’t do much to solve our transportation problems, but neither does complaining for the 200th time about an interaction with an boorish driver. (This is a general point I’m making- not directed at you, Niall.)
