Dear Editor:

The Backlash has begun!

California Residents Fight Back Against Road Diets
Los Angeles, California residents strike back against Vision Zero.

In a blistering repudiation of Vision Zero, 63% of Playa del Rey, California, residents (4794) signed an on-line petition “opposing the ‘one lane madness.’ A counter petition by Vision Zero proponents failed to gather 1000 signatures.” , showing that Vision Zero is being pushed by a tiny, vocal minority. http://thenewspaper.com/news/52/5283.asp

Vision Zero is also unwanted by Philadelphians at large, and is unneeded. It’s a Soviet Socialist central planning tool that its proponents hope will eradicate automobiles. Trouble is, people don’t want to live like that.

A very small, very vocal and belligerent group of agitators at the Bicycle Coalition of Philadelphia (BCOP) is behind Vision Zero, and they want to control you using the deception that “It’s for Safety!” They also feel morally superior because they are doing so much to save the planet by biking. They vilify and shout down any reasoned opposition to their Crusade.

Oppose Vision Zero, and especially let your elected officials know, in no uncertain terms, that you will not tolerate the traffic obstructions demanded by the BCOP. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Tom McCarey Member, National Motorists Association www.motorists.org
